Captains Question Governor

Posted on April 07, 2017

To start the day we met in the theatre of the Parliament Building and had the opportunity to listen to some of the local MP's speak about what happens in the Legislative Council. There was an opportunity to ask them questions and meet them during a lunch break. Following this, we sat in on the Legislative Assembly and the Legislative Council.

After we had finished at the Parliament Building we walked to Government House Sydney where we had a tour around the building. We then listened to the Governor of NSW, The Honourable David Hurley, speak about his role, what he enjoys about it and the different powers he has. The day concluded with an afternoon tea hosted by the Governor where there was a chance ask him some more questions and meet him face to face.
