“I have had a chance to see first hand what has happened to our schools over the last decade and I am going to make sure that the promises made by the new Government in Victoria are kept and, more importantly, implemented.” Said Diaz “It’s one thing to build new schools, but we have over 100 schools in Surrey that are in desperate need of maintenance and upgrading. This is the conversation I will be having with Surrey parents.”
