Australian Middle East Media

Wednesday, 03 June 2020

I proudly inform the House of the success of the Australian Middle East Media group (AME media).

AME media play a crucial role in delivering news to Middle Eastern Australians who may have difficulties accessing Australian media due to their language barrier.

Their publications include daily and weekly newspapers, as well as monthly magazines and an ever increasing presence in the social media space.

Organisations like AME Media ensure that we live in a country where all people have the opportunity to be informed citizens and keep up-to-date on current affairs.

I am lucky to not only have the privilege of representing my electorate of Oatley but to also have some very eager young students wanting to learn about Parliament and government.

Some would say the questioning I received was even more testing than question time in this House.

I recently had the pleasure of attending morning tea at IRT Peakhurst, an aged care and retirement village in my electorate of Oatley.

IRT Peakhurst has been a strong local provider of aged care services, and has a fantastic team of staff to support the residents they care for.

IRT Peakhurst has a robust residents and friends association, who have always had a very active voice in local matters.

This morning tea was particularly important as we farewelled staff member Donna Thomson, who has been a much-loved member of IRT Peakhurst for a tremendous 27 years.
