Event description
Register for the F2F Nth Qld Schools Constitutional Convention for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to discuss a new preamble

About this event

The program will investigate the constitutional issue: 'Should the Australian Constitution have a new preamble that would recognise our history, our aspirations and the many peoples and groups that make up our nation?'

The program involves pre-reading materials, a presentation on parliamentary processes by the Queensland Parliament's Education service, and the election of delegates to the National Schools Constitutional Convention held each March.

The program will be held in Room 142-111-HD Tiered Theatre at James Cook University, 142 The Science Place, Townsville.

Queensland State, Catholic and Independent secondary schools may register a team of up-to-four (4) Year 10 and Year 11 students and one (1) supervisor. Students studying Humanities subjects are well placed to participate in the program.

From each school team, one student can nominate to be a delegate to the national convention, and present a three minute speech on the topic: Why do we need an Indigenous voice?. Students participating in the convention will elect Queensland's delegates to the National Convention.

Following registration of a school team, including contact details for a school contact, pre-reading materials and a draft program will be shared.

Inquiries can be directed to the Queensland.SCC@qed.qld.gov.au mailbox.
