Independent schools today welcomed the appointment of Grace Grace as Queensland’s new Education Minister and Brittany Lauga as Assistant Minister for Education.

Independent Schools Queensland (ISQ) and the Queensland Independent Schools Parents Network (QISPN) congratulated Ms Grace on being named Minister for Education and Minister for Industrial Relations in a second-term Palaszczuk Government.

“Education is a critical area of public policy that directly impacts the lives of 800,000 school-age children and their families and contributes to the future prosperity of the state,” ISQ Executive Director David Robertson said.

“Independent schools look forward to working collaboratively with the Minister on progressing existing changes, such as the new senior assessment and tertiary entrance systems, as well as mapping out the next stage in Queensland’s education reform agenda,” Mr Robertson said.

QISPN Executive Officer Sue Kloeden thanked the Palaszczuk Government for supporting parents to become more engaged in the education of their children.

Mr Robertson and Ms Kloeden congratulated former Education Minister Kate Jones on her new portfolio responsibilities and thanked her for her leadership on school education matters at the state and federal levels.

Mr Robertson and Ms Kloeden praised Ms Jones’ consultative approach to education reform and her genuine support for independent schools.

“The Education Minister is the Minister for all schools. This was a title Ms Jones actively lived in her day-to-day work,” they said.

“We look forward to continuing this valuable and productive partnership with our new Education Minister.”

“We also look forward to engaging with the new Assistant Minister for Education.”
