Sunday 23 February to Sunday 2 March
DonateLife Week is Australia’s national awareness week to promote organ and tissue donation. Tim is urging all local residents to talk to their families about whether they would like to register to be an organ and tissue donor. With one organ and tissue donor able to transform the lives of 10 or more people, it’s a conversation that could one day save lives. For more information visit www.donatelife.gov.au
 
Sustainable Living Festival8-23 February
The Sustainable Living Festival aims to show everyday Australians practical ways in which they can reduce their impact on the environment. Wyndham City Council is holding a variety of green living workshops and tours as part of the festival and you can find out more about what’s on offer at Experience Wyndham What's On Calendar.

Weerama FestivalSaturday 1 and Sunday 2 March 
It’s that time of year again when the colour and noise of the Weerama Festival fills Werribee’s heart. Tim will once again hold a stall at the festival on Sunday, so feel free to swing by and say hello.

Back to school


The start of the 2014 school year is an exciting time for new and returning students – provided they have classrooms to return to. It was touch-and-go for Tarneit P-9 College who had to race to make sure portable classrooms were usable in time for students’ return to school.
 
The Napthine Government has shown little interest in ensuring that our kids have a quality learning environment, with four schools across Wyndham waiting for next stage capital works and many older schools in desperate need of capital investment.
 
Our local teachers and school communities work hard to ensure students have fantastic education opportunities available to them and the Victorian Government cannot continue to ignore their pleas.

Visit OurSchoolNeeds.com.au and tell me what your school needs.


24- hour Public Transport on weekends


A Victorian Labor Government will deliver 24-hour public transport across Melbourne with trains, trams and buses running all weekend, every weekend.

The new Homesafe trains and buses will mean workers and residents having an evening out will have additional options to get home from the city on Fridays and Saturdays.

Under Labor, getting home will be safer, easier and cheaper for residents living in Wyndham.

Victorian Labor has released our alternative vision for transport in Victoria, Project 10,000. As part of Project 10,000, Victorian Labor will:

  • Remove our 50 worst level crossings, including two in Wyndham

  • Build Melbourne Metro Rail

  • Get 5,000 trucks a day off the West Gate Bridge

  • Guarantee $2 billion for country and suburban roads

  • Create 10,000 construction jobs

Get involved

 

Fix our roads 

In November last year, Victorian Labor responded to the Napthine Government’s failure to invest in road funding by launching the Fix Our Roads campaign. Local motorists are urged to nominate the dangerous roads they want fixed to show the Liberal Government that we need more funding, not less, to make Victorian roads safer. Visit www.fixourroads.com.au to nominate a road you want fixed.
 

Fix our schools

Denis Napthine and the Liberals have no rebuilding plan for our local schools. Our kids are forced to learn in classrooms that are falling down.
 
Don’t let Denis Napthine’s inaction mean that your kids miss out. Visit OurSchoolNeeds.com.au and tell me what your school needs.
