Teen Parliament

Two of our students Lily (11RBEN) and Juliana (12JLEY) recently represented Concordia College in The Advertiser’s Teen Parliament. This event was held in the House of Assembly under the encouraging guidance of Speaker Dan Cregan. Selected participants from all over the state presented their ideas to build a bigger and better South Australia. Students were given an opportunity to formally respond to the ideas of others in a Parliamentary style event.

Both of our students spoke beautifully. Juliana spoke of the need for more financial education in schools – this was the topic of her Research Project last year. Lily petitioned for more digital skills to be introduced into the high school curriculum. Following the event, six students were selected to receive a $10,000 scholarship to put towards their future studies.

Juliana was successful in gaining a scholarship. This was presented at the “Building a Bigger, Better SA Forum” - attended by our Prime Minister, Anthony Albanese, South Australian Premier, Peter Malinauskas, the Governor of South Australia, Frances Adamson, and many other politicians and leaders in our state. 

We congratulate both students on their participation in this significant event, giving young people a voice in shaping the future of our State. Read more in The Advertiser.
