Youth Parliament was an amazing experience that allowed me, along with many others, the
opportunity to create bills that were based on a matter that we were passionate about.
We were broken into committees with people who shared a similar passion and worked together to
bounce ideas off each other and create a Bill, about which we were all supportive of. Each
committee had weekly meetings to form their Bill before attending a week-long camp (Residential
Week) to present their Bill to all the other committees. The Bills were then debated on whether they
should pass, allowing participants to engage with their own Bill and with others as well.
I was part of the Gender and Sexuality Diversity committee (GSD) and with many others, our Bill was
formed around the idea of health practitioners having a basic understanding of how to help patients
access the best form gender affirming healthcare. This was known as the Gender Affirming
Healthcare Accessibility Bill and was worked on for many weeks.
Presenting my Bill to others was a great experience which allowed me to work on my public
speaking, confidence, and speech writing. I was able to work as part of a team with like-minded
individuals about a matter I cared about, as well as spending some time participating in fun team
building activities. One of the best moments was being invited to Government house and being able
to meet the Governor of South Australia, Her Excellency the Honourable Frances Adamson.
Youth Parliament was an amazing experience to be a part of and I cannot wait to be part of it again
next year!
I'd like to thank the Rotary Club of Campbelltown for sponsoring me. - Isobel G
At the end of 2020, the Rotary Club of Campbelltown sponsored and helped establish the Interact Club of Charles Campbell College. Interact Clubs involve members between the ages of 14 and 18 – our secondary students. At the same time, through Nikki the chair of our club’s Youth Committee, we supported Charles Campbell College to establish an EarlyAct Club for students in the primary years, up to the age of 13. The mission of EarlyAct is to promote goodwill, understanding and peace through student service - so that with the committed citizenship and effective leadership they can improve the quality of life of their school, local and global communities. At a young age, students can easily be encouraged to be caring and helpful. Young people are open to recognise the dignity and worth of each individual, thereby building their respect for others. Earlyacters engage in character building activities that prepare them for leadership roles - they carry out projects which benefit others. In addition to supporting their school’s Breakfast Club, the EarlyAct Club has initiated a Backpack Project to help those experiencing homelessness. Three members of the board of the new Earlyact club - President Lily, Vice President Tahlia, and Treasurer Ruby discussed their project to the club below.
