Australian Government

This will be the focus of our lessons for the next three or four weeks. In October, after the school holidays, our class will be going to Parliament House for a tour through the building. After that we will be going to the Melbourne Magistrates Court.

I hope you will be able to join us on this excursion. It will open your eyes to understanding about the type of political system we have in Australia and how the law courts operate here.
