Our first event for the semester will be a debate with the Macq Liberals on the topic of Safe Schools.

Safe Schools has been a fantastic program that was established to make schools a safer and inclusive place for all students, in response to the shocking trend of bullying, suicide and exclusion impacting young LGBTI Australians. Unfortunately, the Turnbull Liberal Government has decided to axe the program, by ending funding entirely from 2017.

We will be joined by Penny Sharpe, Labor MLC, who has been a dedicated advocate and member of the LGBTI community and believes Safe Schools is an important program that we should be continuing to fund.
