A formal welcome to Parliament House by the Speaker topped off a fantastic day out for some of our Year 12 Casuarina Stars last week!
Our Stars were super excited to be welcomed to the Legislative Assembly by the Hon. Ngaree Ah Kit, where they were attending Question Time.
“Honourable Members, I advise of the presence in the gallery of Year 12 Stars Foundation students from Casuarina Senior College … On behalf of Honourable Members I extend a warm welcome, in particular to my niece, Alyssa. Good to see you bub!”
Casuarina Stars Program Coordinator, Kylie Duggan, was also publicly acknowledged by the Minister for Water Security, The Hon. Eva Lawler, for her stellar sporting achievements in both AFLW and basketball.
Before attending Question Time, our Stars were met by the Hon. Lauren Moss, Minister for Education, who hosted a lunch especially for them.
During the lunch, several Ministers came into the room to yarn with the girls, including The Hon. Selena Uibo, The Hon. Mark Monaghan, The Hon. Joel Bowden and the Hon. Ngaree Ah Kit.
Such a wonderful experience for our young women!
