Botany Public School new hall
Last Thursday it was my pleasure to be part of the official opening of the new School Hall at Botany Public School – and it’s a great addition to a great school. The hall which has been named after the Late Johnny Warren was built as part of the Australian Government’s initiative to improve our nation’s schools. Principal Jason King presided over a fitting ceremony to officially open the new hall and I was joined by Matt Thistlewaite, who from July 1 entered the Australian Senate, and local member for Maroubra the Hon. Michael Daley. There was a very distinctive soccer theme for the event and I was glad to see some of the late Johnny Warren’s family there to remember our local soccer hero and one of the sports all time greats. Both current and future students at Botany Public School will enjoy this new facility.
