Our Parent and Citizens Association of Mullumbimby High School has worked hard to ensure that every child in our local public school gets a quality education.
With the 2019 state election it is imperative that political candidates are aware of the current public schooling situation in their local area and how their actions and their party’s policies can affect it.
