Sarra edged out of Aussie of Year

FORMER Bundaberg man Chris Sarra was edged out of the Australian of the Year title by Victorian youth mental health expert Professor Patrick McGorry.

The youngest of 10 children, the former Bundaberg East student took on the challenges of indigenous education as the principal of Cherbourg State School.

His “Strong and Smart” philosophy led to dramatic improvements in educational outcomes.

He now heads the Stronger Smarter Institute, which continues to transform indigenous education with positive messages of high expectations, quality relationships and community engagement in schools.
