Today, the Member for Black, David Speirs, the Member for Morphett, Stephen Patterson, and I were treated to a tour of Brighton Secondary school by Principal Tony Lunnis.
We saw sections of the school where part of a $13.84m upgrade is underway to construct a new two story-building with general and specialised learning areas, as part of the State Government’s Building Better Schools program.
It was great to see the worksite which will help accommodated the Year 7 cohort when Year 7s transition into the secondary school system in 2022.
On the tour, Principal Lunnis touched on many of the programs that Brighton has developed, including its fantastic volleyball program and its Think Bright Program, which encourages creative and critical thinking.
I was a student at Brighton Secondary School many years ago and remember being taught by capable teachers who were part of a community that wanted to see its students live happy and healthy lives.
The school has made even greater progress since then and it was fantastic to see the school moving onwards and upwards in very capable hands.
