Our advocacy impacts almost 340,000 students.

Reimagining Education in Queensland's State Primary Schools

Education Reimagined

We’re leading a movement to prepare our students to be the collaborators and empathisers, creators and lifelong learners our collective future requires. Our advocacy document, "Reimagining Education in Queensland’s State Primary Schools" and the supporting white paper serve to spark a dialogue within and between the education, political and wider communities.
