Welcome back to school for another year.

Congratulations to our little preppies who are starting their education journey and hopefully the first day wasn’t too emotional for the parents either!

It’s a year of change for senior students as well, with big reforms coming in senior assessment and the new ATAR system replacing the OP score.

These were changes announced by the LNP in 2014 that have been delayed under the Palaszczuk Labor Government.

It’s the biggest change in almost three decades and will bring our education system into the 21st Century.

Despite Labor’s delay of these reforms – concerns have been raised about the lack of information for students and parents and the lack of support for teachers.

While the delay was disappointing, we recognised the importance of getting these changes right.

As a father of a year 11 student and someone who wants our kids to have a world-class education, we need to make sure the changes are well communicated to parents and students and that teachers are well supported.

Sadly, despite the delay, that doesn’t appear to be the case.

We want our kids to have a world-class education and give them the best chance of getting a good job and get ahead in life.
