Year 6 Parliament Excursion

Friday, March 10, 2023

On Friday the 10th of March Year 6 went to the Parliament House of Victoria in the city. The first thing we did was go to the Library and learnt how this was the first Parliament house that was used in 1901, we also saw the first Mace and first Black Rod ever used in there. We learnt that the Victorian governmenet members use this library to read books. After the library we went to the Legislative Assembly (The Lower House). In the Legislative Assembly we got to learn about the voting system and how it works. Next, we learnt about the voting process in the Legislative Council (The Upper House). We saw a bill that would voted on and saw where the Queen would sit if she was there. After attending the Parliament House we went to explore St Patrick's Cathedral and had the opportunity to play at Birrarung Marr Park before returning to school.
