Mr COLEMAN (Banks) (13:47): I rise today to congratulate the Banks recipients in the Local Sporting Champions grants program, which allows for $500 grants towards participation in a state, national or international sporting championship. In particular, I would like to congratulate a number of young people who have been successful in my electorate: Matthew Dufty of Peakhurst, who represented the New South Wales CCC at the National Touch League championships; Kate Gallagher of Penshurst, who represented Santa Sabina College at the Australian Volleyball Schools Cup; Chloe Plazanin of Peakhurst, a gymnast who trains at Oatley RSL Youth Club and competed at the Sport Aerobics Nationals; Jason Un of Padstow, who competed at the Australian Junior Table Tennis Championships; Deborah Greenbaum of Blakehurst, who competed at the Australian Aerobic Gymnastics Championships; Emma Jackson of Revesby, who represented NSW in baton twirling at the national championships; and Isabella Yan of Allawah, who competed in the Australian Figure Skating Championships. All these young people bring great credit to themselves, to their families and to Banks more generally. I would also like to thank my assessment panel for assisting in making these funding decisions: Ray Barbi, Linda Free, John Meredith and Christine Butters. Their assistance in selecting these winners was a great help to me and I thank them for it.
