​​​Since 1995, the Queensland Department of Education has run a program of school constitutional conventions each year. The conventions educate senior secondary students about the Australian Constitution and how it guides our democracy. They involve students from all 3 sectors – state, Catholic and independent.​

2022 Queensland Schools Constitutional Convention

Queensland’s annual program of schools’ constitutional conventions invites State, Catholic and Independent schools to register a team of students from years 7 to 11 to investigate the constitutional issue – Do we need an Australian Bill of Rights?  

For 2022, participants will engage in the program via:

  • an online statewide convention held through Canvas, which is accessible by all state and non-state schools and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students, on Tuesday 26 July 
  • a face-to-face North Queensland convention for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in Townsville, on Thursday 13 October – for further information and to register your school in this event, please email Joan.McKAY@qed.qld.gov.au​
