Make a Difference Day

On Monday 4th of April, Kathryn Patrizi and Dane Lovell were involved in a very exciting initiative at Parliament of NSW representing Gymea Technology High School.

The day was aimed at developing students’ knowledge and understanding of the Australian democracy system and the rights and responsibilities of Australian citizenship. Dane and Kathryn had the opportunity to listen to current members of parliament from the major parties, participate in facilitated group discussions with students from other schools. They also sat in the Legislative Council while reporting back to the participants on issues they felt were important and how they as ‘youth of today’ can make a difference.

Issues discussed were diverse but of particular significance was the voting age being decreased to 16, human rights, climate change and the disparity between private and public school funding.

Both Dane and Kathryn thoroughly enjoyed the experience and found it empowering and inspiring, hoping to initiate a similar forum at our own school.
