It is always great to see politicians so interested in education that they give up a lunch break. Today, I co-presented to all, except two, of the elected Members of the Legislative Assembly, both Government and Opposition, on the latest designs for the new high schools. Politicians will always be just that, but there was real interest and involvement in the radical new plans for our schools which is one component of the transformation of education. We always stress that new buildings do not raise standards alone, but combined with a new curriculum and real relevant focused teaching and learning styles then they can make an unbelievable difference. The aim is "world class education" we are all working hard to try and achieve it. These school designs are fantastic.
