Students from high schools across the Coast gathered in Woy Woy on December 4 for a Youth Leadership Forum coordinated by the Member for Gosford, Ms Liesl Tesch.
The forum was held at the Easts Woy Woy Rugby league Club and was attended by students from Brisbane Water Secondary College, Gosford High School, St Edward’s College, Lisarow High School, Mackillop Catholic College Warnervale, Tuggerah Lakes Secondary College, Kincumber High School and Narara Valley High School.
Students viewed presentations from Headspace, Evolution Youth Services, local domestic violence spokesperson Danielle Habib, PCYC, Musicians Making a Difference, NSW Police, Central Coast Council and other local organisations.
Students were also invited to network with other young leaders, participate in skills-building activities and were encouraged to share their ideas and visions for the future of their local community.
“It is so important to provide a platform for young leaders to learn and discuss important issues such as mental health and domestic violence amongst their peers.
“I will continue to bring this event to our young leaders on a yearly basis,” Ms Tesch said.
Ms Tesch said she would develop the forum based on feedback received from students, teachers and participants.
