What an honour to speak about Education Week. I acknowledge the member for North Shore, who moved the motion. Education Week is an annual event that is held during the first week of August to celebrate public education in New South Wales. The theme for 2019 is "Every Student, every voice". It is a celebration of the wonderful work of students and teachers and how the education system gives students the skills they need in order to have and express a voice during their own educational journey as engaged global citizens.
I congratulate the many small businesses in the St George area that were recently recognised at the 2019 St George Local Business Awards.
Some of the local businesses recognised with an award include Hummingbird Lane Patisserie at Oatley, All Starz Performing Arts Studio at Peakhurst, Bridge Street Kids Early Learning Centre at Hurstville and Power Up Your Marketing at Lugarno.
