THE Foster community has thrown its consid-
erable weight behind a push to rebuild the Foster
Primary School, with more than 1000 signatures
collected on petitions backing the project.
Gippsland South MP Danny O’Brien has taken
delivery of the petitions and will table them in
State Parliament next week.
“This is a fantastic response from the Foster
community and a great credit to the school coun-
cil led by Matt Wallis, principal Lorraine Gurnett
and the entire staff and student body.
“Foster Primary school was built in 1965 and is
certainly showing its age.
“It’s at the point where the school can‘t continue
to spend money on maintenance for things that
really need to be replaced.
“I started the campaign with the school for a
new school building and will have great pleasure
in tabling this petition in Parliament that will de-
liver a clear message to the Labor Government
that Foster wants its school rebuilt.”
Mr O’Brien said that the school is the same vin-
tage and similar condition to the Yarram Primary
School which received $4 million for a rebuild in
last year’s budget.
“Foster’s environment is not conducive to good
learning for our kids and needs to be upgraded.
“I call on Daniel Andrews to deliver the fund-
ing we need for this school in the next budget or
at the very least deliver the design and develop-
ment money that the school needs to plan for new
Mr O’Brien thanked the school community and
local businesses which had hosted the petitions
and congratulated the entire Foster community
for supporting the new school push.
