Mr BUCHHOLZ (Wright) (13:47): The new school year is now well and truly upon us. I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all of my local students, both primary and secondary, in the electorate of Wright. It was my pleasure to recently attend the Beechmont State School leadership presentation ceremony and to congratulate personally the students on their success in being chosen to represent their wonderful school and fellow students. It was a very special day for the students, their families and the entire community that rolled out to support our new leaders. Congratulations to the students chosen as library monitors, rep assistants, instrumental captains, flag attendants, office assistants, peer mediators, tuckshop assistants, class assistants, house captains and student council members. I've no doubt that they will carry out their duties to the best of their abilities throughout the entire year.
The Year 6 students affirmed their promise to always assist others both inside the schoolyard and outside the school, maintaining a positive attitude to try their best, to respect each other, to be role models and to motivate and inspire their fellow students by going above and beyond. The students at the Beechmont State School and all the schools in my electorate of Wright are capable of so many amazing things. The future will truly belong to them and, if they believe in their dreams, they have the potential to change the world. They have a very bright future ahead of them. I wish all the students of Wright the very, very best into the future.
