Mr CONROY (Shortland) (13:39): This coming Sunday I'm pleased to be attending an open day to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Caves Beach Public School. Caves Beach Public is an integral part of the Caves Beach and Swansea communities, and to reach this milestone in public education is a cause for celebration in our community.

One of the important parts of the open day will be the interning of a time capsule in the school grounds for future generations. I was very pleased to have provided a letter to go into the time capsule. It's hard to imagine what the world will be like in 50 years time. I just hope that at a national level our political system may be a bit more stable than it has been in recent weeks. As members of parliament, we're truly fortunate to be part of so many diverse and vibrant school communities in the electorates that we represent. I sincerely thank Caves Beach Public School for including me in the anniversary celebrations and wish them the best for the next 50 years.

If you're in the Caves Beach or Swansea areas, come down on Sunday for the 50th anniversary celebrations. There will be the Marching Koalas, which started at the school; the cruising Kombis; there will be 1960s themes; there will be amusement rides, market stalls, food trucks, class stalls, music and entertainment; and my stall will be there with the state member, Yasmin Catley. Come and say hello. Enjoy a trip back to the sixties, if you were around then, or get a glimpse of what our seniors lived through.
