The ‘Building Great Australian Lives’ campaign underscores the importance of a strong public education system that delivers equal opportunity for all children to develop their abilities and reach their potential. Our public schools are the bedrock of our community and founded on the principles of inclusion, diversity, excellence and equality.  It is vital that all students have access to high quality education for community well-being, social cohesion and to equip them with the skills and capabilities needed in a rapidly changing world.
