AN AC­TION plan for ed­u­ca­tion in Queens­land Ed­u­ca­tion has a pro­found in­flu­ence on the lives of chil­dren and young peo­ple.

It is es­sen­tial that Queens­land stu­dents are pre­pared for the jobs that to­mor­row will of­fer.

The Queens­land Gov­ern­ment has a plan for ed­u­ca­tion that will see us take our world-class ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem fur­ther and pre­pare our stu­dents for the chal­lenges of to­mor­row.

Ad­vanc­ing Ed­u­ca­tion – an ac­tion plan for ed­u­ca­tion – puts Queens­land stu­dents on the path to suc­cess.

Through Ad­vanc­ing Ed­u­ca­tion we will in­spire stu­dents to be­come life­long learn­ers, global cit­i­zens and suc­cess­ful peo­ple, con­fi­dently able to nav­i­gate their fu­ture.

The ac­tion plan will po­si­tion schools to more ef­fec­tively sup­port stu­dents to de­velop the knowl­edge, skills and qual­i­ties they need to be job ready for the jobs of the fu­ture.

Ev­ery Queens­lan­der plays a part in mak­ing the dif­fer­ence – fam­i­lies, com­mu­ni­ties, early child­hood ed­u­ca­tors, teach­ers, prin­ci­pals, sup­port staff and our ed­u­ca­tion part­ners.

By work­ing to­gether we can en­sure that our chil­dren and young peo­ple have the op­por­tu­nity to ben­e­fit from the life chang­ing ef­fects of ed­u­ca­tion and to be re­silient and en­gaged mem­bers of their com­mu­ni­ties.

We wel­come your views on how we can work to­gether to de­liver our vi­sion for the fu­ture of ed­u­ca­tion in Queens­land and how to best sup­port our chil­dren and young peo­ple to reap the ben­e­fits ed­u­ca­tion brings.

You are in­vited to pro­vide feed­back af­ter read­ing the plan and cod­ing and ro­bot­ics dis­cus­sion pa­per.

ROW­ING NEWS

Gin Gin High School Row­ers have truly proved them­selves.

We en­joyed the first three days of the hol­i­days at the Qld State Row­ing Cham­pi­onships in Rock­hamp­ton.

Row­ers came from schools all over Queens­land.

Many set up large mar­quees with kitchens, teams of cooks and helpers.

Some of the smaller schools also had small mar­quees and all the trim­ming for a three-day pic­nic on the banks of the Fitzroy River.

The team re­ally proved them­selves and were out­stand­ing in their at­ten­tion to all mem­bers.

They were al­ways there to lend a hand with get­ting boats into and out of the wa­ter.

At times they also helped row­ers from other teams.

They set a high stan­dard for our school with their tremen­dous team spirit.

Well done row­ers. We are proud of you and all your fam­i­lies who are also a part of our fab­u­lous team.
