Last week I had the pleasure of visiting the Toowoomba Flexi School to learn more about the incredible programs on offer to support students reach their full potential.

During this visit, I was able to see the Intergenerational mentoring program in action, which provides Year 10 students with one-on-one mentoring and support by a team of senior volunteers.

This program ensures young people have access to a safe environment and a familiar face as they discuss their challenges, concerns and triumphs, while mentors have an outlet to share their wisdom and establish connections with the younger generation as they make a positive difference to their community.

I would like to thank Glen Postle for his ongoing support of the mentoring program, as well as Centenary Heights State High School Principal Maryanne Walsh and Toowoomba Flexi School Head of Department Jo Brennan for inviting me to the fantastic lunch hosted by Toowoomba Flexi School students to celebrate Queensland Seniors Week.

Dr Jim Watterston

Director-General
