Gabby said it was a “big honour” to be chosen as the city’s new youth leader.

“Youth Council is a great way for kids from different schools to work together and have an influence over the broader community, and it’s very special to be able to be a part of it,” she said.

“Our focus (for the coming year) will be on education and VCE attainment, which ties in with the school retention work happening around the region.

“There are no simple solutions, but we will tackle it bit by bit.”
