Last Tuesday night I was honoured to host a meet and greet between a group of university students and some of the current State Members of Parliament. The meet and greet was preceded by a tour of Parliament House, hosted by Minister for Planning The Hon. Matthew Guy MLC, which was particularly informative for the younger students on the tour.
The students on the tour came from an array of different universities, brought together by their interest in government and politics. Many of the students were eager to talk to the Members about their role as parliamentarians and other interests.
The evening brought back fond memories from when I was a university student and went on the tour myself. All in all it was a well planned event and hopefully gave each student some insight into the Parliament.
