Beacy’s Trip to Parliament

Today 30 lucky students from grade 5 and 6 were taken on a guided tour of Parliament House and had a mock debate in the chamber led by Brad Battin, our local member for Gembrook. We felt very special as Brad took us to many places that the public are not normally allowed to go such as the members room of the library, Brad’s office and the liberal and national parties meeting room. We learnt about the history of government in Victoria, the role of different ministers, as well as how bills are passed in both chambers of parliament.
