Visit from Genazzano FCJ College

It was a pleasure to meet and speak with Year 6 students from Genazzano FCJ College on 23 October at Parliament House.

I spoke with the students about our parliamentary processes and the various careers that each of them want to pursue – everything from scientists to footballers and fashion designers!

Visit to CSR Viridian Glass with the Prime Minister

On 23 October, alongside Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Senator Zed Seselja, I visited CSR's Viridian Glass in Hume, ACT.

Viridian is a leading glass provider and the only local manufacturer of architectural glass in Australia.

The Prime Minister, Senator Seselja and I toured the facility and spoke with CSR CEO Rob Sindel about our recently announced National Energy Guarantee.

The glass manufacturing process is energy intensive and the CSR team absolutely know the importance of an affordable and reliable system.

Interview with Barrie Cassidy on Insiders

On 22 October, I appeared on ABC TV’s Insiders and was interviewed by host Barrie Cassidy.

I spoke with Barrie about the Turnbull Government’s recently announced National Energy Guarantee – and the importance of delivering affordable and reliable energy as we meet our international emissions reduction commitments.

Kew Little Athletics Centre 50th Anniversary

On 21 September 2017, the Kew Little Athletics Centre celebrated its 50th anniversary at Stradbroke Park in Kew East. 

I was thrilled to join President Mark Rice, Vice President Simon Olive, State Member for Kew Tim Smith, Boroondara Mayor Phillip Healey, Councillor Felicity Sinfield, Olympians Brooke Stratton - long jump, Luke Mathews - middle distance runner and Damien Birkinhead - shot put, along with hundreds of children and their families to mark the milestone. 

Kew Little Athletics Centre has 350 athletes competing on weekends and run entirely by volunteers. Clubs like this are integral to Australia’s sporting fabric and the Turnbull Government is investing $415 million across the nation to support sport and recreation activities in 2017-18. 


Local Sporting Champions Afternoon Tea

On Friday 20 October, I awarded eight very talented local sporting individuals, representing judo, hockey, athletics, karate and baseball with a Local Sporting Champions grant. 

These recipients were recognised for their outstanding individual efforts in sport and have been chosen from a large field of candidates to represent their team at state, national and international competitions. It takes an enormous commitment of time, money and most importantly hard work to compete at such levels. 

The Kooyong Local Sporting Champions Grants program is an Australian Government initiative to provide financial support for young people aged between 12 and 18 who compete, officiate or coach at a state, national or international sporting event. 

More information about the Local Sporting Champions grants program can be found here.

Visit to Ixom chemical manufacturer with the Prime Minister

On 20 October, I visited chemical manufacturer Ixom in Laverton, Victoria, together with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

Employing over 600 people in Australia, Ixom’s portfolio reaches across a diverse range of industries.

We spoke with the Ixom team about the importance of affordable and reliable energy and our National Energy Guarantee.

Thanks to CEO Dean Draper for hosting us.

Prime Minister's Prize for Innovation

On 19 October 2017, I met with Kooyong constituent Professor Eric Reynolds AO, recipient of the Prime Minister's Prize for Innovation - Australia’s most prestigious and highly regarded award for outstanding achievements in research-based innovation. 

Mr Reynolds AO was awarded the prize due to his extraordinary work to strengthen and improve dental health outcomes. His research on a milk protein that strengthens and repairs teeth has been commercialised into a product that improves oral health and now sold in over 50 countries.

Speech at Torah Completion Ceremony

I was honoured to represent Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull at a Torah Completion Ceremony hosted by the Chabad ACT Synagogue on 19 October in Parliament House.

The term Torah means instruction and offers a way of life for those who follow it. It is believed that every word of a Torah scroll has divine meaning.

At this Torah Completion Ceremony, it was fantastic to see so many people of different faiths, political parties and walks of life celebrating together.

Thanks to Rabbi Shmeuli Feldman and the Chabad ACT Synagogue community for organising such an uplifting event.

Speech at “Plumbing Meets Parliament”

I was pleased to meet and speak with guests of the “Plumbing Meets Parliament” event on 19 October at Parliament House.

I spoke about the importance of energy affordability and reliability – particularly, for Australian businesses – and the Turnbull Government’s National Energy Guarantee.

The “Plumbing Meets Parliament” event was hosted by the Plumbing Products Industry Group which represents manufacturers and importers of plumbing products.

Becoming a “Polished Man”

On 18 October, I became a “Polished Man”, painting one fingernail to help raise awareness about ending violence against children.

At the morning tea hosted by Andrew Wallace in Parliament House, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, other members of parliament and some media representatives also became “Polished Men”.

The Polished Man campaign, an initiative of YGAP, is now its fourth year. Painting one fingernail in October represents the one child who dies every five minutes as a result of violence.
