One of the best parts about my job is visiting schools in Kooyong and welcoming students to Canberra. To support students in the 55 schools in Kooyong, I initiated the Kooyong Student Prize which recognises and celebrates the leadership potential of the next generation.
Each year I produce a School Leavers Guide for Year 12 students which includes sections about career development, further education and training options, financial assistance available to young people as well as useful contact details for more detailed information. Schools can request hard copies of the Guide here.
