Congratulations to Year 12 student Ruby Preece whose Research Project Outcome was published at the request of Chief Justice Chris Kourakis. Her outstanding work is now referred to as ‘The Ruby Preece Paper’.
Ruby researched ‘What are the possible contributing factors to the overrepresentation of Aboriginal youths in the South Australian Juvenile Justice system, and what initiatives can be implemented to assist in lowering this rate of overrepresentation?’. Ruby hopes to pursue a career in law. Her work shows a distinct value not just to herself, but to the wider community and is an example of how research can lead to potential improvements in peoples’ lives.
