Warren Central School Secondary Captain Meg Callander and Vice Captain Nathan Clarke joined other school leaders from around the Barwon electorate in Sydney recently to find out about the workings of Parliament and the role of the NSW Governor.

The day began at Parliament House on Macquarie Street where the Nationals MP for Barwon, Kevin Humphries, just weeks into his new portfolio of Natural Resources, Water and Lands, was on hand to welcome and address the students.  Following this the students proceeded on to visit the Legislative Assembly and the Legislative Council Chambers. 

After lunch it was a short walk over to Government House where students enjoyed a tour of the grand building and gardens and later met with Her Excellency , Professor Marie Bashir, AC, CVO, Governor of New South Wales.

A little bit of sight seeing including a photo opportunity with Natalie Barr of the morning show Sunrise, rounded out the day nicely for Meg, Nathan and Principal William White.
