Local MP faces the tough questions from Stromlo High Students

On Tuesday, 11 June – the Federal Member for Canberra, Ms. Gai Brodtmann (ALP) came to the senior elective class of People, Power and Politics run by Mr. Yu to talk about her work as a politician and to field questions from students. The students had written questions beforehand and copying the ABC television show “Q&A” gave Ms. Brodtmann an intense questioning session on the topics of the daily workings of a politician, why the National Plan for School Improvement (Gonski) was beneficial for all, the importance of education and other associated issues.

The students were very impressed by how seriously Ms. Brodtmann took the students questions and how open she was with her answers. In return Ms. Brodtmann was surprised that the students had written thoughtful and articulate questions.

At the end of the session, Vice-Captain of Stromlo High School Liam McMurtrie presented Ms. Brodtmann a school mug as a token of appreciation. We hope that Ms. Brodtmann continues to visit Stromlo High School and returns for future sessions of meeting our future leaders of Australia.
