Rooms 5 & 6 were fortunate to receive a visit from our local member of Parliament, Mr Vince Catania, MLA, recently. Mr Catania discussed his role as an MLA, his electorate and his duties, in addition to how laws are debated and passed in Parliament.
The students loved hearing that members of Parliament have to run into chamber when the bell to vote is rung, and were excited to find out that everything said in Parliament is recorded in Hansard! The students had many 'hard hitting' questions to ask Mr Catania and can't wait to take him up on his invitation to visit Parliament House one day.
Our Principal, Ms Jackie Barry was also presented with Australian Primary Principals Day Certificate of Appreciation.
