Education Week 2011

The theme of Education Week 2011 is NSW Public Schools – creating the future.

“During this week people in local communities will have the opportunity to visit our public schools and see first-hand the great things achieved day-in, day-out by our students and teachers,” Liberal Member for Penrith Stuart Ayres said today.

“It’s an opportunity for schools to exhibit their academic strengths and outstanding results, quality arts, sports, gifted and talented programs, and extra-curricular activities, and the focus on teaching strong values.

“Since the first school opened its doors in 1848, the public schools of NSW have nurtured the talents of young people and shaped the lives of millions of Australians.

“Many have excelled in their chosen fields and have helped to build this state and nation. Students and teachers of NSW public schools are creating the future and will continue to do so.

“Across Penrith, our public schools will be holding a wide variety of events, activities and performances – everything from readathons to cook-offs, bands to barbecues.

“The state government has a strong agenda to build and sustain great education results and lifelong learning in New South Wales. As the Member for Penrith I look forward to delivering on our commitments to improving road safety at schools with flashing lights, boosting school maintenance funding and working to deliver a creative and performing arts centre at Nepean High.

“I encourage you to check your local school’s website to see what’s on during Education Week. Take an hour or two to see the programs, new equipment, displays, and entertainment.”

“Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to thank teachers, students, P&C Associations, parents and local community volunteers for their hard work, planning, and supervision during Education Week events. Your dedication will ensure that Education Week 2011 is a wonderful success,” Mr Ayres said.
