Mr ALISTER HENSKENS (Ku-ring-gai—Minister for Families, Communities and Disability Services)—In June I had the honour of officially opening the new Senior Learning Centre at Ravenswood School for Girls. I thank the students who guided myself and the Minister for Education and Early Childhood Learning through the centre. For the students in years 11 and 12, this state-of-the-art educational facility has transformed the school experience, especially as they navigate through their final years. In my capacity as the local member, I have met many students who have accomplished extraordinary things not only for the school but the broader Ku-ring-gai community, including Miss Emma Woodcock, the first female Senior Cadet Under Officer and Parade Commander of the Knox Cadet Unit. Ravenswood also participated in the Civilian Army, a local initiative helping the most vulnerable in our community during the height of the pandemic last year. I congratulate Principal, Mrs Anne Johnstone and everyone who made the Senior Learning Centre a reality. The young women of Ravenswood are truly fortunate to have this dedicated learning space.
