Working for you
Twelve Primary Schools from across the Manly electorate were represented at the Bear Pit Public Speaking Competition finals at the Parliament of New South Wales last Friday, which took place for the first time since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The competition, first held in 2009 as the brainchild of former Balgowlah North Primary School Principal Vicki Treble and former Member for Manly Mike Baird, includes class, year, and school level competitions to develop public speaking skills of all students in the Manly electorate.
The Manly community has welcomed the first artist’s impressions for the multi- milliondollar upgrade at Manly Village Public School.
The project will include the relocation and upgrade of administration facilities, new fit for purpose learning spaces including a new special programs space and additional breakout rooms and storage spaces with new out of school hours care (OOSHC) facilities.
Member for Manly, James Griffin said the upgraded facilities are an exciting addition that will deliver modern resources to local students.
