Children’s Parliament

Alberton Primary School Children’s Parliament Framework was developed ​by Sophia Mountzouris, together with Social Work students. The Children’s Parliament of Alberton Primary School (CPAPS) is a group of children, who take on leadership responsibilities across the school. Class members have an opportunity to bring forward ideas and discuss any issues that arise during community meetings. All CPAPS ministries have a staff advisor that they can turn to for advice and guidance if needed.

Congratulations to the below students who have been named in the Ministry for 2024. They include:

Prime Ministers and Deputy Prime Minister

Public Relations

Community Affairs Ministry

Diversity Ministry

Sports Ministry

ATSI Nations Parliament

Environments Ministry

Each ministry is made up of a Minister, Deputy Minister and 4 Members. Along with our Ministries, we have a Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister, and Treasurer. Ministries meet at least 3 times a term to discuss any important issues and organise events.
