Prime Minister Rudd, Matt Thistlethwaite join me in visiting Mascot Child Care

Children, parents and staff of the Mascot Child Care Centre were thrilled today to receive a visit from Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, Kingsford Smith Candidate and former Senator Matt Thistlethwaite, and I this morning.

Whilst the Prime Minister and Matt Thistlethwaite, talked to the media about paid parental leave, they also took the opportunity to talk to me about the O'Farrell government cuts to early child care at Mascot Public School and Banksmeadow Public School which Mr Rudd described as appalling.

Mascot Child Centre owned and operated by Botany Bay City Council was proud to show off to the Nations Leader their magnificent,  picturesque  and well run child care centre.

Matt Thistlethwaite at Pagewood Soccer Club

More than 1200 boys and girls aged from 5 to 12 years, from Pagewood Soccer Club descended on Jellicoe Park today for their annual Presentation Day. Joining the club for the festivities was Labor’s Kingsford Smith candidate Matt Thistlethwaite and Ron Hoenig MP, Member for Heffron. 

Celebrating the end of another successful season of soccer the children each received a trophy and enjoyed a fun day with rides, sausage sizzle and soccer games. 

The wonderful volunteers associated with this fabulous community based club do so much for our community. Not only do they provide great coaching and a great club for our youngsters they also raise funds for charity. This year they held a “Cup Cake Day” to raise money for the Children’s Hospital. 

The Presentation Day was a wonderful family fun day and Matt and I were honoured to be a part of it. We thank the club and its members for their very warm reception and good wishes for Matt for the 7 Septemeber. 

Congratulations Pagewood! Your community salutes you.
