Making Change in SA Parliament
Four PPS students made history having their names recorded in our Parliament’s Hansard after they initiated the momentous name change of the Strangers Gallery to the Public Gallery.
As an amazing example of student voice and agency by this student initiative we have received many accolades and messages of congratulations from our community and those in education including our Education Director who recognised the significance of such an achievement. We were extremely excited to be informed that in 2023 the students have been invited to Government House by the Honourable Frances Adamson AC to receive ‘The Governor’s Civics Award’ for a Yr 6 group.
