The Gift of Education

July 27, 2016


There are many things we, as parents, can give our children, and a strong education is definitely one of them, Fowler MP, Chris Hayes has said about Education Week.

Education Week is being held from 1 – 5 August and is a celebration of public education.

The theme for Education Week is "shared stories, better learning, stronger communities".

"As a parent of three and grandparent of eight, one of the greatest gifts we can give our children is education."

"It has been said that knowledge is power and our children deserve empowerment, they are our future leaders and investing in their educational development will reap rewards for future generations."

"We are very fortunate to have great schools in our community and in my role as an MP, I know that local families understand the importance of education and often parents will do without to make sure their children are educated," Chris Hayes said.
