The St Paul’s College Bill 2018 passed State Parliament without opposition or amendment in either Chamber. Mr Stokes, then NSW Minister for Education, and Mr Dib, then Shadow Minister for Education, worked closely with the College last year to secure this governance reform (both men have moved to new portfolios since the 2019 State election). At the College’s invitation, Mr Stokes addressed students in Hall earlier this year, and Mr Dib did so this month.
