Constitutional Convention

Constitutional Convention

Year 12 students Bayden Curnow and Luke McLaughlin, accompanied by teacher Ms Kira Goodsell, were selected to attend the 21st National Schools Constitutional Convention in Canberra from 16 – 18 March 2016. The National Schools Constitutional Convention Program provides senior students with an opportunity to become better informed about how Australia’s Constitution provides a democratic framework and encourages them to take an active interest in the operation of government. The topic of the 2016 Convention was ‘Education in a Federation’.

Highlights of the trip included visits to the Museum of Australian Democracy and Old Parliament House to hear about education systems from around the world. The group also attended a question time at Parliament House.
