The first day of school is the perfect time to celebrate how important Territory kids are, and what a great job principals, teachers and staff do.
Deputy Opposition Leader Lia Finocchiaro said all Territory kids, no matter where they live, deserve a good education.
“Our children are our future so we must ensure they are getting a quality education which prepares them for the future,” she said.
“We know our Territory schools are full of wonderful teachers and principals, passionate about their jobs, making sure our kids are getting the education they deserve, and for this, we thank them unreservedly.”
Mrs Finocchiaro said she was also excited to see Zuccoli Primary School open today.
“The people of Zuccoli have been fighting hard for this new primary school to support children and families in Palmerston East, so it’s fantastic to finally see students in classrooms at this wonderful community facility,” she said.
Mrs Finocchiaro said 40km/h zones are now in place.
“School zones are there to keep our kids safe, so please slow down in school zones,” she said.
