Students at Tallarook Primary School have been focusing on Australia’s heritage, democracy and government while they explore social justice in our country.
In a couple of weeks’ time, the senior students will head off to Canberra to be immersed in civics and citizenship while they visit renowned landmarks and national buildings.
As part of their investigations the students invited representatives from each tier of government to their school, and have been visited by Mitchell Shire Council local laws co-ordinator Adam Evans and ranger Skip Bray, as well as Member for Euroa and Nationals deputy leader Steph Ryan.
Tallarook Primary School principal Lynette Robberts said Ms Ryan allowed the students to direct the visit by answering the multitude of questions they had prepared.
‘‘Our students were inspired by the three visitors who were able to help them understand the role of each level of government in making and enforcing laws in Australia,’’ Ms Robberts said.
