About the National Schools Constitutional Convention 2021

National Schools Constitutional Banner

The topic is Should the Constitution have a new preamble that would recognise our history, our aspirations and the many peoples and groups that make up our nation?

Due to COVID-19 restrictions it will not be possible for students to meet in Canberra next year. However, we will (subject to health restrictions) be bringing together 25 students from across Victoria to a central Melbourne location to join students from across Australia. The dates for the Convention will be Wednesday 24 and Thursday 25 March 2021

Country students who live more than 1.5 hours away from Melbourne will be provided with accommodation in Melbourne for one night, with teacher supervision. This will be funded by the Australian Government Department of Education, Skills and Employment.

You must be in Year 11 or 12 in 2021 to be eligible to apply. 

Applications to attend the 2021 NSCC is closed.
