PEO resources

The PEO has been producing educational resources for teachers and students since 1988.

Our resources explore the major parliamentary concepts of representation, law-making, formation of government and accountability through play, inquiry, simulation and immersion in the real thing.

We always welcome feedback so please contact the PEO with your experiences, ideas or resource suggestions.
