Congratulations! We did it! Your time was essential in ripping Eden-Monaro out of the hands of Peter-Hendy, the architect of WorkChoices and and an anti-Gonski advocate, and electing a Gonski and TAFE supporter. More than that - you had an impact across the country. Our Gonski campaign was successful in making education the second top election issue behind health.
