Page 2 Term 1 Week 6 04/03/05 "As the voters of tomorrow you are the future guardians of our democracy." So began an interesting session from Raine, one of three guides attached to the Northern Territory Parliament who visited Tennant Creek High School on Monday of this week to a group of year 12 students. On their way to Alice Springs Raine Caldwell, Katrina Fong Lim, and Anna Maria Socci stopped in at Tennant Creek High School to introduce themselves, their roles and to inform students about how they could influence decision making, why it is important to vote, and the role and purpose of the Northern Territory Parliament. In an interesting session of question and answer and mock parliamentary debate students found out just how influential they are as the voters of tomorrow. Students were reminded that "Change may not take place over night, sometimes it takes many years", but it does happen and that they needed to be involved if the change is to be for the better. Peter Corke - Soc Ed Teacher Democracy in Action Seniors Learn Study Skills Last week the Year 12 students were presented with a study skills session. Mr Rothery and Mrs Davenport talked to students about the importance of having a study plan in order to have a balance between school, homework, after school-work and family responsibilities. We also talked of the importance of meeting deadlines, acknowledging others work when writing and not falling into the trap of plagiarising work from the internet. If parents would like more information about any issues to do with study skills please contact Mr Rothery. The session finished with a pizza party as a reward for winning the Trivia Quiz in 2004.
