Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2011 Week 1 Hansard (17 February) . . Page.. 340..
As I noted in a speech last March, there is a misconception about private schooling that only children of wealthy people attend private schools. Regardless of the family's income, the decision to send a child to a non-government school requires sacrifice. Covenant College is a good example of a private school which seeks to provide an excellent standard of education at a modest cost.
I commend all in the Covenant College community and wish them all the best for their celebration of 20 years since their foundation. I look forward to working alongside members for Brindabella, Steve Doszpot, who is also the shadow minister for education, and Brendan Smyth, in addition to the other members of this place to support the college community.
Question resolved in the affirmative.
The Assembly adjourned at 5.17 pm until Tuesday, 8 March 2011, at 10 am.
