More than 30 Year 11 and 12 Legal Studies students from Bundaberg State High School joined State Member for Bundaberg David Batt in Queensland Parliament this week.
As part of the parliamentary education program, the students are given the opportunity to learn about Parliament and Government in Queensland, tour the precinct, watch Parliament in action and where possible, spend time with their Member of Parliament.
In Brisbane for a sitting week, Mr Batt said he was thrilled to be able to accompany the students.
“I feel incredibly privileged to represent Bundaberg in such an important place so it’s always a highlight when the stars align and I am able to spend time with guests from Bundaberg during their visit,” he said.
“It’s fantastic to see so many young people interested in politics and I hope to always provide each student with an authentic, genuine perspective on what I think Government is all about.
“Speaking with students about my role as MP is something I thoroughly enjoy and if teaching staff are interested, I am available to visit classrooms in Bundaberg as part of student studies.
“I would like to thank the students and staff for allowing me to be part of their experience at Queensland Parliament House, as a Bundy High old boy this visit was extra special.”
