A Community Cabinet event was held at Norwood Secondary College giving many locals the chance to meet the Prime Minister and discuss issues of concern with cabinet members such as the Treasurer, the Honourable Wayne Swan and Minister for Foreign Affairs, the Honourable Bob Carr.

The staff and students at Norwood were very welcoming and accommodating of all the visitors and the Community Cabinet was very successful.

The Prime Minister, accompanied by Mike and the Honourable Peter Garrett, Minister for Education, also conducted a schools forum at Nunawading Christian College and attended the Maroondah Schools ANZAC Day commemoration at Ringwood Lake.

The PM also was very pleased to visit and have a coffee at Barclays Café in Heathmont over the course of the day.

While the Prime Minister was happy to talk with locals about all issues of concern to them, she was focussing particularly over the course of the day on the release of the National Plan for School Improvement and the schools funding changes announced this week.
