Ecumenical Service at Carmelite Monastery Kew

On a beautiful Melbourne afternoon the Carmelite Monastery Chapel and spectacular gardens once again provided a wonderful setting for the 2016 Kew Community Festival Ecumenical Service. With the support of local students from the Trinity Grammar Brass Ensemble and the Xavier College boarders who ushered guests to their seats, the service is a true reflection of many religions coming together to encourage cohesion and harmony.

Glenferrie Road Festival

It was great to join the carnival atmosphere at the Glenferrie Road Festival on 6 March. Organised by the  Glenferrie Traders Association the festival brings together local residents, community organisations, businesses and sporting groups. The Glenferrie Festival has partnered with Hawthorn Community Chest with monies raised supporting the great work the Hawthorn Community Chest does in our local community. I am pictured here with Mayor Jim Parke and Councillor Steve Herd.

Launch of the Australian Energy Council

On 4th March I was pleased to launch the newly formed Australian Energy Council, which is an amalgamation of energy retailers and suppliers. The Australian Energy Council will be a common voice for the industry, particularly on matters where market reform can promote competition and provide consumers with more choice. In my speech at the launch I spoke about the rapidly changing energy market that is increasingly influenced by the international state of affairs. I emphasised that industry can work in partnership with governments to maintain secure and reliable energy supplies, help smooth the transition to renewable sources of energy, and empower customers with more choice and access to new and smarter technologies.

Meeting with President and CEO of the NT Farmers Association

On 3 March 2016, I met with Simon Smith, President, and Shenal Basnayake, CEO, of the NT Farmers Association at Parliament House, Canberra. Representing around 220 members, the NT Farmers Association is the peak industry body for the plant industry in the Northern Territory. It was a terrific opportunity to discuss the Association’s priorities for the development of northern Australia, including biosecurity measures and international investment in the north. I am pictured here with Simon and Shenal in my office.

Strathcona at Parliament House

On Thursday 3 March, I enjoyed meeting with 50 Year 6 Strathcona girls on their Canberra excursion. The students experienced Parliament in action, and asked me a series of great questions about my parliamentary commitments.

Scotch College at Parliament House

On Wednesday 2 March, I hosted a group of 80 Year 6 students from Scotch College during their visit to Parliament House. Australia has a long tradition of students experiencing our government and democracy in Canberra. During their visit to the national capital, students will visit the War Memorial, the Australian Institute of Sport, the National Gallery, Questacon and Government House and other significant sites.

Meeting with the German-Australia-New Zealand Parliamentary Friendship Group

On 2 March 2016, I was delighted to meet with a delegation of German parliamentarians in my office at Parliament House, Canberra. The delegation included a selection of members of the German Bundestag who are part of the German-Australian-New Zealand Parliamentary Friendship Group, including delegation leader Volkmar Klein MbP, Rainer Spiering MbP, Cornelia Mohring MbP, Anja Hajduk MbP and His Excellency Dr Christopher Muller, German Ambassador to Australia. We discussed a range of issues including Australia’s energy priorities in a domestic and global context, and the German-Australia trade relationship. I am pictured here in my office with the delegation.

Camberwell Primary School Visits Canberra

On Wednesday 2 March, I met a group of 49 Year 6 students visiting Canberra from Camberwell Primary School in Kooyong. Nearly two million students have participated in Parliament’s school programs since 1988. The Camberwell Primary School students participated in the parliamentary role play education program and then took a tour of Parliament House but not before I met with them to discuss the various levels of government and responsibilities - which will hopefully be helpful with their current school project. Our informal session is capped off with questions from the students and I am always delighted with the interesting questions they ask me!

Hartwell Primary School Visits Canberra

On Tuesday 1 March, I enjoyed meeting 80 Year 6 students from Hartwell Primary School in Kooyong during their trip to Canberra. 100,000 students visit Parliament each year. The Hartwell students visited the War Memorial and Questacon and during their visit to Parliament House we enjoyed an informative question and answer session which demonstrated the students strong knowledge of the political system. Students ended their Parliament House tour by participating in the parliamentary role play program.
