Harmony Week 2014
As the Minister for Citizenship and Multicultural Interests, I would like to encourage my electorate to participate in Harmony Week 2014.
Harmony Week is an opportunity for all Western Australians to celebrate our vibrant multicultural diversity.
It runs from the 15th - 21st March every year and encourages everyone to experience, explore and appreciate WA's wealth of cultural, religious, linguistic and ethnic diversity.

The West Australian Football Commission, in conjunction with the East Fremantle Football Club, has organised the inaugural Harmony Day Game on Saturday 22nd March, celebrating all cultures that call Australia 'Home'.
Not only will you be able to watch three high quality games of Australian Football, there will also be an International Food Fair, as well cultural performances and fun kids' activities.
If you are interested in attending the Harmony Day Game, please visit my office to collect a free family ticket to the game.

No Change to School Catchments Resulting from Local Government Reforms
6 September 2013: In a press release issued today, Dr Nahan reassured Riverton constituents that there will be no changes to local school catchment areas resulting from the proposed Local Government amalgamation reform:
"I have received a number of emails and calls expressing concern that changes to local government boundaries would result in changes to local school boundaries."
"For the record, there is no relationship between local government boundaries and school catchment areas of the primary and secondary schools in my electorate."
"Burrendah, Rostrata, Willetton, Riverton, Parkwood, Rossmoyne and Shelley Primary Schools as well as Lynwood, Rossmoyne and Willetton Senior High School will retain their current boundaries."
The full press release is here.
