Member for Kiama Gareth Ward MP has today announced that a new multimedia and news hub created by students for students has been launched giving local public school students a platform where they can share their views and creativity with the world.
Mr Ward is encouraging local students to pitch their ideas to the editor of the new hub.
“The hub is a fantastic place to have your work and ideas published and accessible to the world,” he said.
“Our local students are so creative with stories to share about our brilliant community.
“I encourage them to take advantage of this new hub to pitch their stories and ideas to the editor.
“The hub is a home for anything from news, opinions, creative writing and all multimedia, whatever your passion or medium is the hub will be interested,” Mr Ward said.
The NSW Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said the Student Voice Hub broke new ground in Australian education by providing students with a platform to share and interact with content created for students by students.
“The Student Voice Hub is a partnership in learning and listening,” Ms Mitchell said.
“It will play a key role in building a better education system as student perspectives, experiences and aspirations shape and enrich our schools and communities.
“It will also provide students with opportunities to refine their writing and content creation skills, along with pitching their stories and ideas,” Minister Mitchell said.
The Student Voice Hub is live on the website at: https://education.nsw.gov.au/student-wellbeing/student-voices.
