Motion - Exford Primary School Bus Crash



Wesnesday, 17 May 2023.

Mr NEWBURY (Brighton) (10:45):

I am sure that the house would agree that any tragic incident that occurs is one that we all feel profoundly and touches us all.

There are incidents, though, that touch us deeply, and I would say that this is one of those occasions – when people from across this State have been so incredibly moved, concerned and worried for those involved in this incident that occurred yesterday.

To hear the CEO of the hospital caring for these children and the passers-by who stopped their cars to get out and help these kids I think has touched people across this State.

I know that the kids involved in this crash have been in everybody’s hearts ever since the incident.

The incident has clearly been so tragic in nature, and the harm and damage to these kids has been just so moving. I am sure that I speak for every Victorian and every person in this place when I say that we have been so incredibly moved.

Today our hearts will be with everybody involved – I want to place that on record, on behalf of this whole Chamber – with the families and children, for their absolute best and speediest recovery
