Mr WOOD (La Trobe) (16:27): Today I rise to recognise Fleetwood Primary School in the suburb of Narre Warren in my electorate of La Trobe. Fleetwood has approximately 330 students. It runs a fantastic range of educational and recreational programs designed to engage all the students. The school motto is 'achieving excellence together'. The community of Fleetwood Primary School is certainly living up to the motto and I congratulate it. Last week I had the great pleasure of viewing the work of the talented visual arts students. In particular, I awarded three students the La Trobe art award: Zoe in grade 2 for her owl; Keanna in grade 3/4 for her cats; and Jack in grade 6. Jack is artistic and has great imagination and talent. With the blessing of Jack and his parents, Jack's picture will now form part of my Christmas card, which will go out to a number of people throughout the electorate.

I congratulate the principal, Kerry Coffey, who is doing an amazing job at that school with all the staff and all the community volunteers who help the students at the school. Finally, I again thank all the students for getting involved in the art presentations. It was simply fantastic. It was a job well done and very inspiring.
