Sunshine Coast Grammar Principal leads the way, representing the region at global forum.

Sunshine Coast Grammar School is proud to announce that our Principal, Mrs Anna Owen, has been invited to attend and present at the Global Inclusive Schools’ Forum in Paris from 14-15 March 2024.

Organised by UNESCO and the International Forums of Inclusion Practitioners, the Forum is a prestigious event that brings together educational leaders, policymakers and experts from around the world to discuss and share insights on inclusive education.

The invitation is a significant acknowledgment of the combination of Mrs Owen’s work at Sunshine Coast Grammar School, founding the People, Planet and Progress purpose program and her passion and work on behalf of Grammar, as a member of the Biosphere Community Advisory Group to the Sunshine Coast Council.

Mrs Owen expressed excitement and immense gratitude for the opportunity.

“I am honoured to represent not only our school but the Sunshine Coast region and share what we are doing at a local level with a worldwide audience. Students are excited that UNESCO is interested in what we are doing and how others can learn from our programs.”

Mrs Owen will share her experiences, best practices and successful strategies that have contributed to Sunshine Coast Grammar School’s success in delivering the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Sunshine Coast Grammar School is confident that Mrs Owen will make a significant contribution to the discussions at the Global Inclusive Schools’ Forum and bring back valuable insights that will benefit our community, locally and further afield.

Mrs Owen has also been honoured with an invitation to the commemoration of the 30th Anniversary of the Salamanca Statement of Principles on 13 March before the conference in Paris.
