Today I wish to pay tribute to one of the great schools in my electorate. Tucked away in the peaceful back streets of Epping is a unique and special school designed for unique and special students with intellectual disabilities. Today I want to acknowledge Karonga School.
Recently Karonga opened their newly upgraded multi-sports court, which was made possible by the ClubGrants Program and especially through the great fundraising efforts of the Epping Club. I congratulate Club President David Taylor, CEO Peter Saez and the Epping Club board and management on making this happen.
Karonga believes that all students can learn. It provides exceptional personalised learning and support across the breadth of the Australian curriculum. Teachers work closely with parents to identify priority areas for learning and tailor in class programs and extra-curricular activities to meet student need.
I would like to acknowledge Koronga principal Mark Gosbell, and his excellent team of teachers, school learning support officers, support staff, grounds and administration staff. And I thank them for the difference they make in the lives of some very remarkable students.
