School’s in…in Canberra!

Senate

All Saints’ College senior students consistently achieve outstanding results in Politics and Law course, and perhaps part of the reason for this is the College’s commitment to experiential learning, with the class heading off to Canberra to further their studies!

Inspired by an enviable list of Subject Exhibitions (top of the State) and Certificates of Distinction (WACE exam scores of 100%), the All Saints’ Politics and Law students visit the national capital and have the opportunity to visit Parliament House, the Australian Electoral Commission, War Memorial and High Court, reinforcing the learning in a range of subjects covered at the College.

“At Parliament House, a tour around the two chambers involves a mock Senate Committee hearing, giving our students first-hand experience of behind-the-scenes work of Parliamentarians,” says P&L teacher, Tim Brown, “and, as a bonus, current students get to meet our College’s 2000 Captain, Max Jeganathan, who is now a policy advisor to Jenny Macklin. We really appreciate that Max takes time out from his heavy schedule to speak with our students about his work as a Ministerial staffer.”

“Our students come away from the national capital with a great insight into our country’s political system, which definitely helps them with their senior secondary studies, and a real appreciation of the history of this nation.”

All Saints’ College has been ranked as WA’s top independent coeducational school, with excellent results in the WACE examinations.
