Vice-captain appointed to Minister's steering committee

Brisbane Water Secondary College Umina campus vice-captain Charli Grant has been selected as a member of the Education Minister's Student Council steering committee.

The steering committee will shape the way the Minister's advisory Student Council will work, when it is launched next year.

Minister for Eduction Ms Sarah Mitchell said: "The Student Council will be the peak forum for myself, department senior officers and students to engage in authentic discussions that will help shape education and school policies that affect students."

In a letter to Charli, Ms Mitchell said: "I need you to co-design a system that will ensure student voices are heard.

"This is a big task - but I know you are up to the challenge.

"You have taken on an important role, and I thank you in advance for your commitment to help make this important initiative a reality.

"The impact of recent events including natural disasters and Covid-19 on the wellbeing and learning of students has emphasised for me how important this Student Council will be.

"Thank you for taking on this important task and I look forward to meeting you, and seeing the results of your work on this committee."
