WHY DO YOU WANT TO APPLY?

Why would I consider being student president? Think of our school as a backyard BBQ and I’m keen to be the one flipping the snags. It’s not just about wearing the apron; it’s about firing up the grill of ideas and serving up a feast of change. I’m here to add a bit of Aussie spice to our school, turning our collective dreams into fair dinkum realities.

WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS FOR THE ONLINE PROGRAMME?

My plans for the online program are to give it a burl, have a few cheeky laughs, and make it as ripper as a kangaroo on a trampoline!

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO CHANGE/ADDRESS/ACHIEVE/IMPROVE BEING A STUDENT REPRESENTATIVE?

In all seriousness, as a student representative, lets foster closer interaction with the university to enhance the overall student experience. Working to set things up better for the future, through initiatives that benefit students in the long run. Let’s make sure our uni experience is as awesome as an Aussie barbie on a sunny day.
