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.
The program involves pre-reading materials, keynote presentations exploring perspectives on a constitutional issue, discussion groups, development of a communique outlining a proposal for change and the election of delegates to participate in the fully-funded
National Schools Constitutional Convention held each March.
