Parliament offers a range of education programs at Parliament House or at schools, including tours of Parliament, metropolitan and regional visits and parliament role plays.
Parliament Role Plays
Parliament role plays give Year 5, 6 and 7 students the opportunity to act out the various roles in Parliament and pass their own law. This interactive activity takes place in the Legislative Assembly chamber and allows students to experience the law-making process first hand.
VCE Role Plays
The VCE Role Play is a new program for Year 11 and 12 VCE Legal Studies students, which allows students to gain an understanding of how a law is made by following a scripted role play.
Metropolitan and Regional Visits
Presentations for Years 5-7 and VCE students at your school or in a regional venue by experienced presenters from the Legislative Assembly.
You can find more information on these school programs in the Visit section of this website.
Victorian Students' Parliamentary Program
The Victorian Students' Parliamentary Program brings primary and secondary students to Parliament to debate issues and participate in democratic processes. In 2017, the Primary Schools' Parliamentary Convention will be held in August. The Secondary Schools' Parliamentary Convention will be held in September, with local school conventions held in the lead up to this date. Attendees of the Secondary Schools' Convention can apply to attend the three-day national convention in Canberra the following year.
