Members Statement - Brighton Secondary College


Wednesday, 5 June 2019.

Mr NEWBURY (Brighton) (09:55):

Brighton Secondary College is an impressive school led by Richard Minack that prides itself on providing inclusive, comprehensive and wide-ranging educational opportunities. It is also a large school that serves 1200 students.

I recently visited the school for arts and international week. For the first time the school hosted a smoking ceremony and welcome to country. As part of the welcome, Boon Wurrung elder Janet Galpin spoke about the importance of leading lives with purpose.

The school has an incredible arts program. In late March, I attended the school’s annual house chorals competition. One of the highlights of chorals is a performance by the teachers. Congratulations also to Ellie Kara on being awarded best solo performance.
