I would like to thank the Communities@Work CEO, Lynne Harwood, for inviting me to be part of their graduation. It was also fitting to find that many family and friends of the graduates were present. This goes a long way towards showing that further study at any level is often not possible if it were not for the support of such a strong network.

I would like to recognise the continuing contribution that Communities@Work make to training and development in the early childhood sector. I also offer my congratulations and best wishes to the following graduates: Razia Akhtar, Suma Allen, Leticia Aronsen, Gurjit Badwal, Caitriona Banton, Laura Barnett, Tamera Beath, Sanae Bouckaert, Sonja Breust, Fabiana Cavazzoni, Angela Collins, Sebastian Cox, Nike Etim, Ashlea Fitton, Demi Fort, Samantha Fuller, Ishani Galkandage, Damayanthi Gamage, Clare Glassford, Kellie Greer, Tayla Hankin, Karla Harris, Melissa Harris, Justin Hiatt, Wendy Hliang, Shayima Hussanee, Lorraine Keaveney, Angela Kelly, Natalie Knill, Elise Koppie, Yvonne Lim, Jessie Lister, Elizabeth Mahon, Samantha McElligott, Norah Mears-Smith, Chimere Mercieca, Rebecca Monk, Ashleigh Monteleone, Grace Montomerie, Monica Murray, Michelle Napier, Keirra Pace, Mallarie Parker, Anna Perry, Sindy Preston, Leah Ramos, Rosario Ramos-Gordon, Theresa Rodda, Tamara Ridley, Antonella Sassu, Nerroli Scott, Ashleigh Smith, Sandra Solomon, Krystal Sparrow, Sonja Taylor, Shirley Tennant, Kara Tierney, Kylie Tojaki, Jahanara Urmee and Natalie Vrins, who all completed a certificate III in children’s services.

I also congratulate Samantha Campbell for completing a certificate IV in children’s services in outside school hours care; Yolanda Beniamini, Catherine Buckley, Cherie Cochrane, Ayesha Durrani, Rachna Gulia, Karen Hayden, Rebecca Jones, Mona Kleimann, Hyunsook Rebecca Lee, Shannon Lister, Kate Miller, Ashlea Nicholson and Alena Voysey for completing a diploma of children’s services in early childhood and education care; and Julie Koch for completing a diploma of children’s services in outside-school-hours care.

Greening Australia

CBR Collective

MRS JONES (Molonglo) (5.10): I rise today to highlight the work done by Greening Australia on national tree planting day. I was pleased to accompany Steve Doszpot MLA as we attended Ngunnawal Primary School last Tuesday, 30 July, to help the children with the planting of their bush tucker garden. It was a lovely Canberra winter morning. The sun came out and the children really enjoyed the tree planting. I met many dedicated teachers, assistants and carers at the school who have worked with Greening Australia to make this garden possible.

I would also like to acknowledge the many parents who have contributed time and energy to this wonderful garden for the children. I thank Adam Shipp, whom I met, from Greening Australia for managing the planting. I especially would like to thank the teachers whose hard work made the garden possible. In particular, I was privileged to meet Michelle Northey, Kate Wiley, Janice Schroder, Wendy Barnsley, Lindy Parker and Caroline Evans.
