We are pleased to announce that Year 10 student Annika Poole will be our 2018 San Sisto representative on the Lord Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council (LMYAC). Each year, Brisbane high schools are invited to nominate one Year 10 student to the represent on the council. LMYAC delegates act as representatives of their school and community, and are a voice for raising issues or sharing ideas that affect young people.
LMYAC aims to develop young people as leaders, and is specifically designed to provide an opportunity for young people in Brisbane to participate in decision making at the local and citywide level. Students identify issues and engage with each other in a public forum, where they are encouraged to provide feedback and give their opinion about Brisbane City Council policies, local laws, services and programs that affect young people.
Congratulations to Annika and well done to the other Year 10s who put forward a nomination for this position. It is wonderful to see that we have so many Year 10 students who want to be of service to our college and the wider community.
