State Constitutional Convention

Four students from LSC were privileged to represent the college at the State Constitutional Convention on September 3rdat State Parliament in Melbourne.  Angus Clarke, Eden Free, Isla Hickey and Phil Smith discussed, debated and presented on the topic of “Should we abolish the Legislative Council (Upper House) in Victoria?”
Students gained great insights into how to present to a large group and particularly how to complete a prepared and an impromptu speech. They presented their arguments in the Legislative Assembly which was presided over by Maree Edwards, MP (Deputy Speaker).
(The final vote for the proposal was as follows – against: 59, in favour: 10)
