South Australia’s Commissioner for Children and Young People, Helen Connolly, is hosting the first face to face meeting of members of the State’s newly established SA student representative council (SA SRC). The inaugural meeting will take place at Adelaide Festival Centre on Friday 13 May with 123 members of the 166 strong body of students who make up the SA SRC (selected from over 240 applicants) who are travelling from around the state to attend in person.

A partnership between the CCYP and the Foundation for Young Australians (FYA) supported by the National Indigenous Youth Education Coalition (NIYEC), the Commissioner is particularly excited to be welcoming SA SRC members from regional South Australia who have been financially supported to attend. They include student representatives from Whyalla, Ceduna, Roxby Downs, Mount Gambier, Port Lincoln, Kimba, Victor Harbour, and Meningie who will have the chance to meet and spend time with their metro counterparts to take advantage of a rare opportunity to connect and exchange ideas and strategies with other young people who share their passion for bringing about positive change.
