Yesterday was a rainy day here in Melbourne, Australia, but the rain did little to dampen the spirits of our students and teachers as we waited for our local Member of Parliament, Hon. Brendan O’Connor to officially open our new Classroom block and Library extension. After the singing of our National Anthem, Advance Australia Fair and our new School Song our Principal, Mr Chris Sevior, introduced Mr O’Connor. He spoke about the reasons behind the Federal Goverment’s BER allocation of up to $3,000,000 to each school in Australia in order to upgrade their existing facilities. He explained that was an investment in a better future for all our students. He handed over a plaque to School Captains, Daniel and Jennifer. It will be displayed prominently on the new buildings. Our six new classrooms, Computer Centre and vastly improved Library are already being put to good use to enhance our great learning environment. So, as the School Song ends, “Lakers all the way”.
