MR J.E. McGRATH (South Perth) [12.19 pm]: I acknowledge the presence in the Speaker’s gallery of a group of students and teachers from Como Secondary College in my electorate.

Mr M.P. Whitely: My old school!

Mr J.E. McGRATH: It is a very good school— where did they go wrong with the member for Bassendean?

Mr M.P. Whitely: Some of us went to jail, and a couple of us ended up here!

[…]

Mr J.E. McGRATH: […] It is very important for us to get programs such as this going.

Mr M.P. Whitely: Are you looking at a rebuild of the whole school?

Mr J.E. McGRATH: Yes, a rebuild of the whole school. I think it needs it. In the short term there are a few things that might be happening; there are a few problems that need to be fixed. The school is 40 years old and is in a bad state of disrepair. Not very long ago, a rat was discovered in a classroom and the classroom had to be evacuated.

Mr M.P. Whitely: I left a long time ago!

Mr J.E. McGRATH: I know there has been talk of rodents in this chamber over the past few weeks, but this was a big rat!
