NSW 2150 29 32 24 Four-block walk to class Should the students stay at their old campus until a new kiss-and-ride is ready? www.innerwestweekly.com.au From Page 1 ''They have a finished building and it would be a tragedy to have to wait to use this beauti- ful building because the tunnel entry into the car park isn't complete,'' Mrs Stone said. ''We have notified parents, in particular the parents of the students in the year before kindergarten who are new to the school and for them it is critical as they can't be relocated anywhere else.'' Park Rd resident Victor Pigott is against the entire proj- ect. ''Not only is the operation predicted to create traffic con- gestion but the safety of the students will be at risk,'' Mr Pigott said. ''Imagine over 500 little girls, walking up four blocks, cross- ing four roads in blocks of 165 and imagine the morning and afternoon cars that would have to wait for the kids to cross these roads. ''It's going to be chaotic and the school should have put in a traffic plan with their proposal, which they didn't and I can't see any evidence of the school ask- ing parents what they think.'' Mr Pigott, who lives in be- tween two MLC properties, said he didn't understand why the school couldn't wait until con- struction was complete. ''Why not wait, instead of putting the students and com- munity through this appalling exercise?'' he said.

Two years later, the childcare centre still isn't a reality but Ms D'Amore said it's ''getting there''. Politicians are now allowed to breastfeed in the chamber however -- although Ms D'Amore doesn't think she'll be availing of the option. ''I breastfeed in my room and I find that is more settling for the baby because the chamber can be quite rowdy,'' she said. The unsociable hours of MPs, particularly the weekend and night meetings mean that hus- band Richard Tripodi, a barris- ter, has to be a particularly hands-on dad. ''I help out with bottles and the nappy changes, they're my speciality,'' he joked.
