Terrific morning at William Ruthven Primary School talking to Year 5 and 6 students as a part of their Civics and Citizenship studies.
Lots of good questions from passionate, optimistic kids about life as an MP, how our national parliament works, and topical issues like climate change and the recent marriage equality survey.
My favourite question was: ‘Do you know Paulin Hanson?’ I know enough to know that Senator Hanson’s policies are poisonous for Australia!
