PARLIAMENTARY ROLE PLAYS We can visit your class for FREE and spend time immersing your students in parliamentary education. Your classroom will become a Legislative Assembly and the students decide what bill they debate, write their own speeches and take on a role in parliament. Our role plays are highly interactive, linked to the curriculum and fun for all. ROLE PLAYS FOR SRC & LEADERS We are also available to run our role plays with students involved in school representative councils or other leadership programs. Our role plays can help develop student understanding of democratic processes and responsibilities involved in representative decision making. OUTREACH ROLE PLAY PROGRAMS Even if you are a school in a regional or remote area, we can still visit your class for FREE as part of our Outreach program. This includes a Remote Schools Program which facilitates the learning of Parliament through a series of hands-on and visual resources leading up to a modified version of the role play. For bookings or queries call Karen on 8946 1414 or email karen.parker@nt.gov.au The Northern Territory Library is located in Parliament House and can be a worthwhile addition to your school visit. There are often exhibitions held in the library, details of which can be found in this page of our newsletter, or at www.ntl.nt.gov.au. Staff can also provide tours tailored to your needs. For example if youre teaching history you may like to show your students how to access old newspapers on the microfiche, or see some old maps of Darwin. There is also a permanent display which tells the story of an Aboriginal man called Neighbour who was awarded the Albert Medal for saving the life of the policeman who was holding him captive. If you are interested in adding the library to your Parliament House visit let us know when booking.
