This year, to celebrate the local area as well as the talent and creativity of young locals, I am running the Bentleigh Film Festival. The theme is Life in Bentleigh (electorate) and entries will be open to secondary school students who live or go to school in the Bentleigh electorate (up to and including 19 years of age).
The Andrews Labor Government is making it easier for students at McKinnon Secondary College’s new East Campus to get to school, adding an extra bus service during the morning and afternoon peak.
Member for Bentleigh Nick Staikos announced a $981,792 Building Blocks capacity building stream grant to increase kindergarten places at Cheltenham North Preschool.
Nick Staikos joined Premier Dan Andrews at the school, where the Victorian Government has invested $1 million to upgrade the junior school building.
Planning is progressing on the new East Bentleigh Ambulance Station, with a site now selected at Moorabbin Hospital campus.
The Danny Frawley Centre for Health and Wellbeing at Moorabbin Reserve will help to improve physical and mental health for athletes and the local community – a fitting tribute to a man who was as passionate about mental health as he was about football.
Year 8 & 9 students at McKinnon Secondary College will start 2022 in a brand new school, as part of the Andrews Labor Government’s work to deliver a great local school for every Victorian student.
Connect Health and Community will receive more than $850,000 to upgrade the roof, install solar panels and replace de-humidifiers in the hydrotherapy centre
