• Re-open the former Geelong Private Hospital
    In light of the need for medical assistance during the COVID-19 epidemic it is not acceptable to have a 107 bed hospital sitting doing nothing. This hospital is set to be reopend by the Victorian Govt and it is time to this now rather than in a few years time!

  • Saint Brigid's Primary School Camps
    The students look forward to their camps each year with much joy. School camp offers a structured opportunity for children to grow. This experience allows kids to become independent and self-confident, while socialising and making new friends, and even learning new skills. The children often look forward to this experience from grade prep through to when they are finally old enough to attend. Due to excess enrolment numbers Saint Brigid's Primary School has decided that grade three and five children will no longer be able to attend school camps. The school held a meeting with the students ‘about school camp’ recently. The grade three, four, five and six children were gathered together where they were told that for half of the children in the room there would be no camp, this was very upsetting for them. Many parents telling the story of children crying after school as they were so upset. The school has a view that the children will equally receive these opportunities with an ‘activity week’ at school is met with resistance from both students and parents. Although it will be a fun and rewarding experience, the children are unlikely to get the benefits and excitement of a camp. The locations of the planned camps are of disappointment also. With only two camps now offered in the children’s primary years it is disappointing that the ones on offer do not include either Sovereign Hill or Canberra. A school excursion to Canberra is considered a rite of passage for many Australian students. Students visit many attractions including the Museum of Australian Democracy, Parliament House, the High Court and, of course, a highlight for many — Questacon. More than 100,000 school students get first-hand knowledge of democracy and lawmaking on a visit to Parliament House every year, a truly unique and beneficial education experience – one that our children will no longer be offered. It is so disappointing to think that due to the growth in our school population our children will no longer be given the opportunity to: a. Participate in school camps for two of their four last years of primary school b. Visit Canberra and the unique education experience it (they will also not be attending Sovereign Hill in Ballarat – another important education experience for students). We would like the Saint Brigid's Primary School reconsider: • The cancellation of school camp for our grade 3 and 5 students. • The ceasing of a school camp to Canberra for our senior students.

  • Save the Mount Gravatt Green Space
    The green space between Clough St and Middleton St has been used by local residents for generations as a safe place to have a family picnic, kick a footy, play with your dog and ride a bike. It is also a great place to wander through and watch our local wildlife as they use the 100 year old gum trees. The recent construction of units and townhouses in our local area has also significantly increased the use of this green space. For our local community this is the only large, flat area of its kind, away from busy main roads that provides a safe place for our kids and pets to play. The land is currently owned by the Department of Education, and is proposed to be developed into a 40-vehicle staff car park for the Nursery Road State Special School. This proposal will result in increased traffic through our narrow residential streets; the loss of green space and recreation area; and loss of old gums, vegetation and wildlife. This green space is very important to our local community. Please support this petition and encourage the state and local governments to provide a solution that permanently protects this area from development, and ensures it remains a park for the Mount Gravatt community for generations to come.

  • Stop logging what is left of NSW and Victoria’s native forest
    Our native wildlife has lost hectares of native forest in the recent bushfires. To allow logging of our national parks threatens the very survival of our unique Australian Wildlife. We stand on the brink.

  • RELEASE Australia's withheld water supplies NOW
    AUSTRALIA IS NOT RUNNING OUT OF WATER... IT IS BEING SOLD FOR PROFIT ! Let's stop arguing about whether climate change is real or a hoax, it really doesn't matter any more. Australia is in a catastrophic state of emergency and if these water mis-use practices are not immediately ceased, the situation will become even more disastrous.

  • The RFS need support, it’s time to call in the army.
    This is a natural disaster. The Volunteers who have been battling the Australian bush fires are exhausted. They are in desperate need of man power. The flames of the fires burning in Gosper Mountain last night were over 60 metres high. Six people have passed and over 500 homes have been lost.

  • Petition: Increase Funding for Australian Native Wildlife Rehabilitation
    Koalas are now functionally extinct. We have wildlife hospitals over capacity and surviving almost entirely on donations, rescue organisations and carers trying to save animals often in their homes at their own expense. People from all over the world donating and stepping in to help. Yet our government pays next to nothing to support our wildlife hospitals and stand up to their responsibility. Too little too late for Queenslands fauna emblem and one of Australia's most recognisable native animals. What's going to be next?
