Community Recognition Statement
Mr ANOULACK CHANTHIVONG (Macquarie Fields) — A child's education is very important to parents.
Whether it's helping out with homework, spending time helping in the classroom or expressing words of encouragement, parents want help with their child's education.
The parents from Serbian Orthodox St Sava College at Varroville took their commitment to education one step further.
Volunteers from the school community also rolled up their sleeves.
They raised money and volunteered their time to help build the school.
I had the privilege of attending the recent official opening of St Sava College with my federal colleagues the Member for Macarthur, Dr Mike Freelander MP and Member for Werriwa, Anne Stanley MP.
The opening was a wonderful example of faith, community and education coming together.
Congratulations to our local Serbian community for all their fundraising efforts and tireless volunteering to build the school, which welcomes students of all faiths.
I send my best wishes to the school's leadership team, staff and students as they embark on their educational journey at St Sava College.
