Ku-ring-gai Primary School Leaders Parliamentary Morning Tea

14 November 2019

Mr ALISTER HENSKENS (Ku-ring-gai) — Recently I had the privilege of hosting the 5th annual Ku-ring-gai Primary School Leaders Morning Tea here at Parliament. I welcomed 36 students from 19 Ku-ring-gai schools along
with their parents and teachers to acknowledge the contributions our school leaders have made to their school communities.

The students were taken on a tour of this Chamber by our outstanding Parliamentary guide, Peter Tuziak and visited the Legislative Council. I conducted a more amateur tour for the parents and teachers, but was
assured upon conclusion that it was enjoyable and informative.

Prior to the presentation of the leadership certificates at the morning tea, I delivered a short speech where I expressed my views on leadership. I then proceeded to answer questions from the students who raised engaging topics such as the drought and single-use
plastics.

I hope that the young men and women found their visit be to an interesting and valuable experience and I look forward to hosting another year of young leaders in 2020.
