WA Senator Scott Ludlam visited a Mindarie school this month to talk to north coast students.
Irene McCormack Catholic College politics and law teacher Katriese Wilder co-ordinated the May 1 talk at Peter Moyes Anglican Community School, where The Greens Senator gave his reasons for entering politics.
“An activist background and graphic designer by trade he entered politics to make a difference,” she said.
“He spoke about how the Senate fulfils its roles or functions as a House of Review and currently holding the balance of power.
“The students asked questions about specific Greens policies for example, cleaner energy (fast rail transport, sustainable energy and industry).”
Mrs Wilder said they also discussed the controversy of US President Donald Trump and nuclear weapons.
“It was very informal and Scott ditched the microphone and lectern to sit on the edge of the stage and had a very ad hoc conversation with them,” she said.
Politics and law students from both schools attended the talk.
