Speaker launches 'Ask an MP'
A new online education experience connecting MPs with students has been trialled by Speaker Colin Brooks.
‘Ask an MP’ provides the opportunity for students to speak with their local MP online at a time when school excursions and visits are on hold during COVID-19.
For the pilot session of the program, the Speaker answered questions from Grade 5/6 students from Watsonia Heights Primary School, which is in his electorate.
Students and teachers welcomed the opportunity to connect online with their local MP. Based on their feedback, the program will be made available more broadly over the coming weeks.
