Better Schools

Premier Kate Ballard today dropped in to the art room of her local primary school, a school that’s seen fantastic results since the government’s 2009 ‘Better Schools’ reform.

“Getting our kids a better education is one of the reasons I went into politics. Only with a quality education can our young people achieve their full potential. I’m thrilled to see our ‘Better Schools’ reforms already delivering some spectacular results.”

Ballard highlighted statistics that showed our students outperforming the national average. As of this year, the state also enjoys the highest tertiary entrance rate in the nation.

Happily chatting with the students, the Premier was taken by surprise when she was asked, “Do you have any allergies?”.
