Year 11 Politics & Law students Tamsin Elder and Renee Hilton-Jones attended the Vietnam War Political Discussion on 19th August 2016 held at Comet Bay College. Special guests to this discussion were Deputy Commissioner Peter King (Department of Veterans Affairs), Paul Papalia CSC, MLA Member for Warnbro, Vietnam Veteran Duncan Warren and US Consulate Politics & Economic Officer Joe James.
The students were also lucky to be invited to visit Government House and the House of Parliament on 25th August 2016 with Defence Transition Mentor Claire Hunt and HASS Teacher Wayne Lanham.
Tasmin and Renee commented “The experience of being immersed in WA’s political world was both informative and inspiring. It also encouraged us to explore the possibility of being a part of Western Australian politics ourselves in the future ”
“We were very appreciative of the opportunity to meet people of such high esteem and visit these interesting places.”
Both the Vietnam War Political Discussion and excursion to Government and Parliament House were enjoyed by all students who attended.
