Bring your school to Parliament
More than 100,000 school students get first-hand knowledge of democracy and lawmaking on a visit to Parliament House every year. Will your class be among them?
School tours are available 9am-5pm Monday to Friday between 1 February and mid-December, excluding public holidays.
All Australian primary and secondary schools can participate in Parliament's school tour program. Your class can experience a guided tour that includes visits to both chambers, and enjoy refreshments in the Queen's Terrace Gallery.
Deepen their knowledge with role play
The Parliamentary Education Office also offers the opportunity for primary and secondary school students to experience the life of the parliament through role play.
The role play, complete with costumes and props, is led by an experienced educator in a mock parliamentary chamber. Students explore what it's like to make laws, represent constituents, and oversee the work of government.
