School Programs

 School Programs

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 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.

For more information on public tours or to book a school or group tour call the Tour Booking Office on (03) 9651 8568 or email
