Visit to Coorparoo Secondary College



I was pleased to recently visit Coorparoo Secondary College to spend some time with their Senior Leaders.

I spoke to them about their studies, their plans for the future and what they’ve enjoyed about their time at this terrific Queensland state school. It was great to listen to their experiences and to share some of my old school stories.

I wish all of the senior students all the best for the remainder of their school journey.

Principal Roslyn Parkes also introduced me to some fantastic Year 8 English and SOS students. One of the classes was studying the Apology and the students were keen to ask me lots of questions about how I wrote the Apology speech and what I hoped it would mean to Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.

I really enjoyed the discussions with both classes and I look forward to visiting again.
