Role-play program at Australia's Parliament House (APH)
We have been delivering the role-play program at APH for over 20 years. Each year over 90 000 students participate in our role-play programs. The total number of students who have participated in role-plays at APH since day one in 1988 is 1 605 160.
Our role-play gives students from all over Australia the opportunity to experience what it's like to be a parliamentarian or an official working in the federal Parliament.
The role-play explores the four main functions of the federal Parliament:
- making and amending laws
- representing the people of Australia
- forming the government
- scrutinising the work of the government.
Role-plays are facilitated by experienced educators and take place in a simulated parliamentary setting, complete with costumes and props. The PEO will make every effort to accommodate students with special needs. Prior negotiations with our office would be appreciated.
