Students and teachers from Millicent High School visited Federal Parliament yesterday to see how the National Government works up close.
Member for Barker, Tony Pasin, was on hand to discuss his role in the Federal Parliament, his own experience visiting Parliament as a young student and to discuss how the Government and Parliament works for the people of Australia.
“I was particularly pleased to recount to the students the story of my own school trip to Canberra and Parliament House in 1989 highlighting that they too could one day be given the privilege of representing Barker in the National Parliament,” said Mr Pasin.
Mr Pasin also took the time from the House of Representatives to join students as they participated in a mock parliament to test their skills as legislators.
“I was impressed by the enthusiasm the students from Millicent High showed for the democratic process and I once again commend the Millicent School and teaching staff for taking advantage of the opportunity to show the leaders of tomorrow our national institution,” said Mr Pasin.
