CATHY McGowan (MHR, Indi) praised the efforts of Bright P12 College students, staff and parents in Parliament early last week.

On Monday, August 17, Bright P-12 College junior captains, Ben Hausser, Max Walton, Claire Lock and fellow student Spencer Reid, principal Jean Olley, teacher Jenny Young and College councillors Gerard Gray and Jason Reid were welcomed to Parliament by Ms McGowan.

The representatives toured Parliament House, enjoyed lunch with Ms McGowan and sat in on Question Time.

Ms McGowan made a short speech in Parliament about the strong leadership within the school and community.

“The students of Bright P-12 College tell me it is a wonderful place to play sport, to be in the concert band, to do arts, to study Japanese and to play in the beautiful school grounds. They tell me that one of their favourite things has been going off and learning about leadership through the Halogen program,” she said.

“It gives me great pleasure today to talk about leadership in rural and regional Australia and to welcome into this House eight outstanding leaders from Bright in the beautiful Ovens Valley.
