VCE Role Plays
The VCE Role Play is a new program for Year 11 and 12 VCE Legal Studies students, which allows students to gain an understanding of how a law is made by following a scripted role play.
Metropolitan School Visits
Metropolitan school visits provide an opportunity for students to learn about Parliament from experienced Parliament tour guides in their own classroom — available to students in years 5, 6 and 7 and VCE.
