YEAR 5/6 EXCURSION: TREASURY BUILDING & PARLIAMENT HOUSE

Today we went to the Old Treasury Building and Parliament House. The Old Treasury was designed by nineteen-year-old architect  JJ Clark.  It is a grand building showing the wealth that was in Victoria during the Gold Rush Years.  This is one of the rooms we saw.  We also went to Parliament House where the Laws that affect Victoria are made and are passed.  We learnt about the two houses- The Legislative Assembly and the Legislative Council.  

We had a great time and learnt a lot about our history!

We would love to hear your thoughts about the laws we have. Did you know that anyone can suggest that laws should be changed or introduced?  Is there a law that you think we as Victorians should have? We would love to hear your opinions. Please post here!
