Last week Federal Member for Berowra the Hon. Philip Ruddock MP hosted St Agatha’s Primary School, Pennant Hills, at Parliament House in Canberra. After touring the upper levels of the house and viewing the chamber Mr Ruddock fielded questions from the inquisitive group ranging from how many years he’d been in Parliament to what it is he does there.
“I think the class were extremely interested to know about the design of the building and just how big the flag on top of the Parliament is” said Ruddock.
“I was very pleased with their willingness to learn, and explained the importance of democracy in our country and their right to vote, especially after I explained how important the right to vote was in other countries such as South Africa in 1994”.
