    Education Forum with Simon Birmingham

    Paul hosted an education forum with the Minister for Education and Training, Senator the Hon Simon Birmingham, and representatives from local secondary schools and community colleges in Bradfield. Minister Birmingham spoke on the Turnbull Government’s recent achievements in landmark education reforms, specifically highlighting the passage of the Australian Education Amendment Act 2017 at the end of the Autumn Session of Parliament.

    Attendees included principals of government, catholic and independent schools in Bradfield and representatives from their parent groups and school councils. Minister Birmingham outlined the Turnbull Government’s roadmap for further education reforms including the Higher Education reform and the Gonski 2.0 review into Achieving Academic Excellence in Australian Schools. There was a broad and constructive discussion which extended well beyond school funding issues to consider how best our schools can deliver on their mission of educating the next generation of Australians.

    Paul visited Pymble Public School to speak to Year 6 students before their trip to Canberra to visit Parliament House. The students had many insightful and challenging questions.

    Paul attended the opening of the new Integrated Cancer Centre at Sydney Adventist Hospital at Wahroonga – the ‘San.’  This impressive facility is the culmination of 12 years of planning, development and fundraising.

    Speaking at the event, Paul joined state colleagues Matt Kean MP and Alister Henskens MP; San CEOs past and present, Dr Leon Clark and Mr Phil Currie; San Foundation Co-chair Dick Warburton; and breast cancer patient Tanya Manwaring who spoke about her own experience and the care she has received at the San. 

    During a tour of the Centre guests observed a demonstration of how multidisciplinary teams assess patient cases using the high tech meeting room equipped with computers, high resolution screens and extensive networking capability. 

    The $23 million investment in this Centre will deliver tremendous benefits for San patients for many years to come.

    DoSomething Day: Ku-ring-gai Meals on Wheels

    As part of the national DoSomething Day on Wednesday 19 July, Paul joined a local volunteer from the Ku-ring-gai Meals on Wheels service to deliver hot meals to residents in the Turramurra and St Ives areas.

    Meals on Wheels helps local residents who have difficulty in providing food for themselves by delivering regular meals and a friendly conversation. It is a volunteer service run by locals and ensures that many who are immobile or isolated have a regular point of contact.

    Paul joined in on a local run and met several residents who depend on Meals on Wheels each week. Anybody interested in volunteering for Ku-ring-gai Meals on Wheels can contact their office on 02 9144 2044.
