Legal Studies Students Visit Parliament House

Parliament 7.JPGIt was an extremely rainy day on Friday 1st May, but that didn’t stop the Year 11 and 12’s going on their 
excursion to Parliament House. Ronan, Courtney, Pedro and I Josh) were chosen to be members of Parliament along with other schools, such as Marsden and Mt Alvernia. We were all on the Government side, which is Labour, and I had the opportunity to be the Deputy Premier of Queensland and sit in the actual seat that the real Deputy Premier of QLD, Jackie Tran, sits. All of us prepared 1-minute speeches about issues in Queensland, for example ‘over supply of teachers’. It did feel like we were actual politicians when the opposition would have an interjection, and when the Government supported your idea by yelling out “Hear Hear”. Overall, we all had an exceptionally fun time and we all like to Thank Ms Rolfe for giving us this great opportunity.
