    The Honorable
    Lindsay AO CMG.
    When you worked with a man like Lindsay Thompson you were certain of wisdom, vision, foresight and understanding particularly of the needs of children.
    He was quickly in command of new ideas and sought to obtain the means to bring them to reality.
    I met him first in 1955 and it was a satisfying pleasure to be involved with him in the overseas
    recruitment program,
    the International Teaching Fellowship, now in it's 37th year, REGIONalisation, school councils and their communities, training of principals, improved conditions for teachers, and a whole series of advances which typified his 1970's.
    A fine gentleman in manners, always in control of himself, the STATE of Victoria and Education generally is deeply in his debt.
    Personally on behalf of my family I extend the deepest sympathy to Joan, Murray, Heather and David and I'm sure that the people of Victoria will say with deep meaning
    ``Thankyou
    Lindsay Thompson''

    We are saddened by Lindsay Thompson's passing but gladdened by his extraordinary contribution to this STATE as a wise and courageous leader and educator.
    As a parent activist and later as Minister of Education, I will never
    forget Lindsay's generosity
    in broadening, across the political divide, my understanding of the politics and purpose of education.
    Lindsay's purpose was to ensure every child enjoyed and benefited from learning. His politics included strong advocacy for public education and respect and support for teachers as professionals. He created history by being the first STATE Minister of Education to legislate to ensure parents were partners in decisions on education.
    Thank you Joan and Lindsay for your contribution and support. And just for once, we don't begrudge the Tigers beating the Bombers on Saturday!
