Home About Out and About Events

We want to express our gratitude to the young people, parents, teachers, and caregivers from specific groups who shared their ideas and comments at our meetings across the country in late 2018.

We’ve completed a detailed analysis of all of the ideas and comments shared during those meetings. You can read a report of those findings here:

These comments and the evidence we already have, is bringing change to our education system. There will be further consultation on these changes later in 2019.
