Future Leaders' Conference 2019

12th October 2019

Swinburne University

9:00AM - 3:00PM

As part of the Future Leaders Conference, students will learn about how school attendance is an essential element of a child’s intellectual, emotional, physical, social and cultural development. Students will learn about the factors that contribute to increasing absentee rates and the issues that stem from a student skipping attendance at school.

 Alongside learning about the repercussions of school absenteeism, students will also learn about how bullying is a leading contributor towards school absenteeism. They will gain an understanding as to how bullying can contribute to a student not feeling safe or welcomed at school as well as learning how the implementation of anti-bullying programs can help to lower the rate of school absenteeism in Australia.
