Wentworthville Tamil Study Centre

Dr HUGH McDERMOTT ( Prospect ) ( 13:26 ): The Wentworthville Tamil Study Centre, also known as the " Tamil school " is a wonderful organisation in the Western Sydney community. Each Saturday, more than 650  students take part in Tamil language classes from pre-kindergarten to year 12 , using the classrooms at Girraween Public School. In fact, about half of the Girraween Public School population are also students of the Tamil Study Centre. The Tamil Study Centre is doing a remarkable job at fulfilling its mission of rendering educational, cultural and social services to the Tamil community ; empowering Tamil children to communicate fluently in Tamil with their parents, teachers and peers; providing opportunities for Tamil children to learn and understand the Tamil culture through drama, dance and music; encouraging youth to develop leadership skills by conducting annual speech competitions and performances ; and enhancing education of Tamil children using state  of - the - art technology. commend the Centre's committee for providing such a wonderful service. In particular, I thank the secretary, Mr Partheepan Gunaratnam, for inviting me to Kalai Vizha, t he centre's annual cultural festival. The Tamil community is an important part of Australian society, and I am proud to represent them in the New South Wales Parliament.
