Ms SHEED — Education remains high on my agenda, and I was pleased with the million-dollar prebudget announcement for a Shepparton education plan and funding for six of our schools. The announcement, as part of the Minister for Education's visit to my electorate, has sparked discussion around a transformational change in the space of secondary education in the Shepparton district, and then later following through to primary and to early education services. Our community is truly ready for this change. It must happen, and happen quickly, to ensure significant improvement in the education outcomes for the children in our district.
