Speaker, I rise to acknowledge and congratulate Learning Links on their unwavering dedication to improving the educational opportunities of our young people.
Learning Links was established in 1972 by a group of parents who were concerned about the lack of appropriate education and support services to meet their children's needs.
Today, Learning Links assists almost 4,000 children to reach their learning goals, taking a holistic approach that focuses on ongoing collaboration, empowerment, integrity and excellence. Their innovative work has meant many local children are now able to realise their full potential and lead lives unencumbered by learning difficulties and disabilities.
Speaker, organisations like Learning Links are essential for our community. They ensure our future generations are confident in their abilities and develop a life-long love of learning.
On behalf of my community, I would like to thank Learning Links' Chair Greg Wallace, CEO Birgitte Maibom, and the rest of the Learning Links team for their commitment to creating a future generation that is ready to take on the world.
