Fact finding mission: MP Greg Warren with some of the Campbelltown region student leaders who visited the NSW Parliament.

More than 30 high school student leaders from Campbelltown joined State MP Greg Warren for a visit to State Parliament in Sydney.

Students and staff from Airds High School, Ambarvale High School, Campbelltown Performing Arts High School, Eagle Vale High School, Leumeah High School, Thomas Reddall High School, St Gregory’s College, St Patrick’s College and Broughton Anglican College joined Mr Warren for a tour of Parliament House.

The students visited both chambers of Parliament, the Legislative Assembly and Legislative Council, and learned about the process by which laws are created in Australia’s oldest parliament.

After the tour, Mr Warren presented each student with a certificate congratulating them on their appointment as a student leader for the 2016 school year.

“It’s fantastic to have such a strong group of student leaders from Campbelltown who are passionate advocates for young people – whether that’s in their school community or the broader Campbelltown community,’’ Mr Warren said.

“These students regularly go above and beyond what is required of them in advocating for their peers, and this recognition is just a small way of saying thanks.”
