Zero Tolerance on School Bullying

Today I am announcing a Liberal Nationals Government will have a zero tolerance approach to bullying in government schools.

Our Zero Tolerance on School Bullying policy is a $15.3 million, four-point plan that will focus on learning respect as well taking a hard line approach to bullying in government schools.

This will be the biggest school anti-bullying program in Australia. Victoria will have the safest schools in the nation.

If Victoria is to be its best self, then it starts with people respecting one another. 

Learning to respect everyone regardless of gender, religion, sexuality, race, ethnicity, family circumstances and appearance begins in our homes and schools.  

$500,000 facility upgrade for our Mitcham Tigers

An elected Liberal Nationals Government will contribute $500,000 to expand the new viewing facility planned for Walker Park.

These funds come on top of the $3.45 million contributed by the Federal Liberal Government, the AFL and Whitehorse Council.

The Mitcham Football Club and the Mitcham Cricket Club are the oldest sporting clubs in the City of Whitehorse. For more than 100 years, these two great clubs have called Walker Park home.

Walker Park is now also home to the Mitcham EFL Netball Team, an increasing number of women’s and girl’s football and cricket teams as well as girls and boys Milo and Auskick clinics. 

The clubs have outgrown their old and outdated facilities. Large clubs, like our Mitcham Tigers, need 21st century facilities to accommodate their growing membership and supporter base. This vital addition will enable sufficient capacity to host events and activities in view of all the on-field action.

Congratulations to the Ringwood Saints Baseball Club on their 50th anniversary. Ringwood Saints is a fabulous family club, with baseball enjoyed by all ages in our community. This was well demonstrated at their recent birthday celebrations, with every age group present.
