School captains from Dubbo, Canowindra, Narromine, Peak Hill, Tullamore and Yeoval High School's walked in the shoes of the local Member when they toured NSW Parliament House in Sydney with Troy Grant, as part of the NSW Governments Secondary Schools Leadership Program.

The students from Dubbo College's three campuses, Canowindra and Narromine High Schools, Yeoval, Peak Hill and Tullamore Central Schools spent Friday 15th June experiencing a snapshot of what Mr Grant job involves during Parliamentary sitting weeks.

"It's an important opportunity for our young civic leaders to gain a firsthand account of what Parliamentary life is really like and hopefully inspire some of them to consider a career in politics," said Mr Grant.

Each year the Secondary School Leadership Program provides an opportunity for students from all around the state to become aware of democratic processes and experience the environment of Parliament House and Government House.

School captains are invited to meet with Members of the Legislative Assembly and Members of the Legislative Council. Members of Parliament make themselves available to address students on leadership and to meet informally with their student constituents.
