Thank you so much for that splendid introduction. Ladies and gentlemen, isn't it magnificent to be introduced by someone who not once but twice has won a seat off the Labor Party. I want to express my total, absolute and utter conviction that of all the former fish and chip shop owners who have come from Queensland to the federal Parliament, Teresa Gambaro is the best!

How to Donate

Care packages can be sent free of charge to the below AFPO addresses so long as they strictly comply with Australia Post guidelines.

Gaythorne RSL Remembrance Day Writing Competition

Tuesday, 15 November 2011 12:00 in Ryan Events

The Gaythorne RSL Remembrance Day writing competition was a great success this year with wonderful entries from local students. Jane was delighted to present some of the awards for the outstanding literary offerings. A much appreciated surprise on the night was the gift of $6000 from the RSL to St William’s Catholic Primary School to sponsor their 2012 Year 7 trip to Canberra. Students will visit Parliament House and the War Memorial as well as other significant sites and facilities.

The Gaythorne RSL and President Merv Brown work tirelessly – not just for their RSL members but also the wider community. This is a wonderful boost to St William’s and will ensure a very memorable experience for their students. I hope to welcome them on their arrival at Parliament House!

Jane Prentice MP and RSL President Merv Brown present the cheque to the thrilled and grateful St William's School.


Petition for a Boer War Memorial

Thursday, 29 September 2011 16:32 in Ryan Events

I recently met with members and friends of the Queensland Branch of the Boer War Memorial Association.

I am pleased to support their efforts in seeking funding for a Boer War Memorial on Anzac Parade, Canberra, to honour the service and sacrifice of the 23,000 or so men and women of Australia who served our country in the Boer War of 1899 - 1902, of whom around 1,000 gave their lives. These same men and women laid down the foundations for the Australian Defence Force which has served our country so well these past 110 years.

Please consider signing the petition to support the Boer War Memorial Association, which can be obtained by contacting my office or by clicking on the link below:

Australian Defence Medal Presentation

Wednesday, 13 April 2011 14:08 in Ryan Events

Recently, I was privileged to present Gunner Steven Castleman and Second Lieutenant Gary Fooks with the Australian Defence Medal. Together with Wing Commander George Hodgson, representing the Australian Defence Force, and Merv Brown, President of the Gaythorne RSL, I had the honour of formally acknowledging and thanking these service men and their families for their significant contribution to Australia.

The medal recognises current and former Australian Defence Force Regular and Reserve Personnel, volunteer and national servicemen, for their efforts in the defence of our national interest. Our defence forces make a great contribution to our nation both away and at home. Congratulations and thank you once again to Steven Castleman, Gary Fooks, and their families, for allowing me to share such an important occasion with them.


Small Business forum with Tony Abbott

Wednesday, 30 March 2011 14:18 in Ryan Events

Recently I hosted a Small Business Community Forum with Tony Abbott, Bruce Billson, Shadow Minister for Small Business and Teresa Gambaro MP, Federal Member for Brisbane,to meet and listen to local small businesses in our community. With over 150 people in attendance, the event was an overwhelming success. It was very clear that small businesses feel they are not being heard by the Gillard Government.
