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.
