Victoria Premier Daniel Andrews has shared a heartfelt note on social media to his son for his 18th birthday despite a gruelling schedule of daily briefings.
“You only turn 18 once,” Mr Andrews wrote last night, alongside a picture of the premier wrapping an arm around his son Noah’s shoulder.
“Couldn’t be more proud.”
Noah, who this year sits on his VCE, is the eldest of the three Andrews children.
Mr Andrews shared a photo of himself with Noah on Instagram earlier this month, detailing the obstacles facing Year 12 students in Victoria.
“Growing up is hard enough – but the stresses and strains of 2020 are something else,” he wrote.
“I know this (year) hasn’t been easy,” he continued.
“My son Noah is studying hard for his upcoming SACs.
“It’s hard on teachers, hard on kids, and it’s hard on parents.”
