Norwood Secondary College Adjournment

Ms RYALL (Ringwood) — (13 024) My adjournment matter is to the Minister for Education. My request is that the minister urgently appoint architects to develop the master plan for Norwood Secondary College. On 24 November 2015 I raised a constituency question for the Minister for Education regarding the fact that Norwood had already gone through the probity process for selecting an architect to conduct its master plan. In that question I asked the minister to intervene promptly to ensure that Norwood Secondary College could use its selected architect to get on with the job of developing its master plan to upgrade the school. The minister's response to that question did not address the master plan at all.

Congratulations to East Ringwood football and cricket clubs, our Chin community and Maroondah City Council.
