Members Statement - Lady Forster Kindergarten


Thursday 7 March, 2019.

Mr NEWBURY (Brighton) (09:50):

Lady Forster Kindergarten is a special kindergarten located on the Elwood foreshore that celebrates its 95th anniversary this year. Lady Forster is also unique in that it is located right on the beach.

Lady Forster is an integrated part of the Elwood community and also delivers an exceptional program through its coastal curriculum in which children learn about the bay and the foreshore ecosystem.

I recently visited Lady Forster to welcome a South Korean delegation who were visiting Australia. The delegation leader spoke to me about the similarities between our foreshore and Busan in South Korea, where they are from. The delegation also took part in a welcome to country ceremony.

I congratulate the kindergarten on being leaders in their field and for hosting the recent delegation.
