Local Conventions and Secondary Schools' Parliamentary Convention
The Victorian Students’ Parliamentary Program aims to provide opportunities that support the civic learning and active participation in democratic processes of all Victorian students through local, state and national parliamentary programs and in school activities, and to support the professional learning of civics and citizenship education.
Local Constitutional Conventions provide Years 9 – 12 students with the opportunity to discuss contemporary social and legal issues, and especially those relating to the Australian Constitution. Local Constitutional Conventions in 2018 were held in May or June. The Victorian Department of Education and Training provided funding to the six schools selected to host a Convention.
Around 100 students who attended one of the local school conventions or similar Civics and Citizenship activities across Victoria were eligible to apply to attend the Secondary Schools’ Parliamentary Convention which was held at Parliament House, Melbourne on Wednesday 12 September 2018. The topic was ‘Does the Constitution meet the needs of modern Australia?’ Students from Years 9-12 nominated to attend.
