School Civic Visits

We offer a civic education program for primary and high schools. The program involves a one hour visit to Council Chambers where students can see where major decisions are made about the future of Darwin, experience a Council meeting by participating in a mock Council debate and learn how to play an active and positive role in the community.

Students will:

  • develop an understanding of the role of local Council
  • explore some of the different services undertaken by local Councils
  • understand how local Councils make decisions
  • determine the consequences of the way Councils make decisions
  • identify some of the processes of active citizenship in the local community

Each program can be tailored to meet the needs of the students. Guest speakers can be invited from various departments such as community services, waste and recycling, environment, the library or roads and drainage.
