Hornsby Secondary Student Leaders got a sneak peek into state politics when they visited NSW State Parliament for the first week sitting week of the year.
Students from Asquith Boys and Asquith Girls High School, Barker College, Galston High School, Ku-ring-gai High School, Northholm Grammar, Normanhurst Boys High School and Pennant Hills High School attended and had the opportunity to sit down to lunch with Hornsby local member Matt Kean MP.
Member for Hornsby Matt Kean said, “I met some amazing young kids and if this is the future for Hornsby we are in good hands.”
The students were ‘on the ball’ on local issues when they discussed with Mr Kean a range of topics from climate change and the environment to issues with local bus services.
Mr Kean, who recently became the Minister for Energy and the Environment was very interested in what the students had to say.
Dropping in on the lunch was Premier Gladys Berejiklian who talked to the students about her journey to become Premier.
“Getting to hear from our newly elected Premier on the first sitting week of the new Parliament was something these students will never forget. These are bright and engaged students and I have no doubt they will have exciting futures ahead of them,” Mr Kean said.
The students who are all leaders at their respective High Schools also visited Government House following their lunch with Mr Kean.
