Private Members Statement – Freedom of SpeechNovember 17, 2015
I congratulate the parents and citizens association at Maroota Public School for organising this year’s annual spring carnival, the Maroota Muster. I recognise the hard work of principal Naomi James and the many volunteers from the school and local community who put on a stellar day. The Maroota Muster provides much-needed funds to provide equipment and resources to the school, which is home to only 52 students. I say a special thankyou to CareFlight, the Rural Fire Service and the State Emergency Service for their contributions in the lead-up to this event. On the night of the muster, Channel 9’s The Voice featured Maroota Public School and students were taken to the studio for a private music lesson and a tour of the set. It was a fantastic way to recognise one of the smallest schools in the Hawkesbury electorate. I look forward to next year’s muster.
