MEMBERS STATEMENTS- Maddison Grey and Brooke Boulton

Ms SYMES (Northern Victoria) (10:04:24) — Happy International Women’s Day to everyone.

Mr Gepp — And to you.

Ms SYMES — Thank you, Mr Gepp. I would like to use this opportunity to congratulate two young women from the electorate of Northern Victoria Region, Maddison Grey and Brooke Boulton, who were awarded the Outstanding Student Award in health for successfully completing a diploma of nursing, enrolled, division II nursing, and certificate III in individual support at Seymour GOTAFE.

Not only did Maddison hold her diploma of nursing previously to this but she completed a dental nurse qualification and in the future she will go on to La Trobe University to complete her bachelor of nursing.

Certificate III in individual support student Brooke Boulton was also awarded the outstanding student award for health. These young students will now enter the local workforce, and it is testament to the teachers and courses that are available at Seymour GOTAFE.
