Charli presents proposal in Legislative Council chamber

Brisbane Water Secondary College student Charli Grant made a presentation in the Legislative Council chamber at Parliament House on Wednesday, February 10, to Education Minister Ms Sarah Mitchell.

She was one of 13 NSW public school students who presented a draft proposal on the formation of a Minister's Student Council.

Appointed by the Minister, the students had been working together since the start of Term 4 last year to help develop a structure, rules for governance and membership for the Student Council.

The student proposal included a 24-member council with three student representatives from every educational directorate or region across the State.

The representatives would also facilitate regional-based forums with students to ensure a diversity of views were able to be brought to the Minister's attention.

They would include students with disabilities, varying academic performance, and students with different living circumstances.

Ms Mitchell announced her plans for the Minister's Student Council in August last year saying it would be the peak forum for interaction between NSW public school students, Education NSW and the Government.

"Our most important stakeholders aren't at the table when they need to be.

"I want to add the student council to this group to work together on policy reform."
