A little about me: I’ve been playing netball for nine years (basically forever!), I’m a big fan of reading, and I absolutely love the beach. For me, joining the Student Voice Team is all about making sure students like us are listened to. I truly believe that when we speak together, we can make our school experience even better. I’m excited to see what this year holds and to be part of the 2024 team!

Learning and trying new things are my favorite activities. My enthusiasm for helping others and having a growth mindset led me to become a consultant. I believe I can make a difference in this world, even if it’s a small step. As a consultant, my goal is to create awareness regarding student voice concerns that get overlooked so all BCE schools have a sense of belonging and help create a joyful atmosphere for everyone.​

Student Voice Peer Mentors and Ambassadors



Hey, my name is Ethan and I'm excited to be back for my third year in the Student Voice initiative, this time as a volunteer. I am passionate about creating a fair and inclusive education system that engages and empowers all students, regardless of their age or abilities. I'm always eager to learn from others and use my knowledge to make positive changes in educational environments. Through Student Voice, I have had the opportunity to advocate for students across the Brisbane Catholic Education community and make significant accomplishments in my own school community in 2022. I am eager to continue supporting this growing initiative and see where it will lead us in the future. ​🎓 



Hello there, I’m Louie and I’m in year 12 student. I’m always curious about learning new things, which led me to explore my passions in diverse areas. From music (playing guitar, piano, saxophone, and drums) to business (entrepreneurship, marketing), graphics (video editing, graphic design, animation, and photography), media (YouTuber, fashion), sports (table tennis), and, of course, Student Voice—I'm always eager to try something new. Being part of the Student Voice team since 2020 has been an incredible journey, and I'm honored to continue as a BCE Student Voice Peer Mentor for the second year. Empowering others to become agents of change in their communities is one of my favourite aspects of Student Voice. Through my involvement with this initiative, I've grown in leadership, communication, organization, and teamwork skills. It's been a transformative experience that has enriched both my personal and professional growth. My hope is that Student Voice will continue to thrive as a platform that effectively conveys student ideas and thoughts to BCE executives, resulting in ​safer, more inclusive, and engaging schools for all students.
