Congratulations to Year 11 student Jayda Watson, who has been accepted into the 2017 YMCA Youth Parliament program. The YMCA Youth Parliament program is an apolitical program which provides young people aged 15 - 18 with a platform to speak out about issues that matter to them. All participants are divided into committees and each committee is required to write a bill. Once this bill is written we attend a week-long camp during July where legislation and other motions are debated in NSW Parliament. Jayda has been given the Portfolio of Aboriginal Affairs for this year's program.
“I am very honoured to be accepted to Youth Parliament," says Jayda, "and I am excited to make the most of the opportunity to work with other young people from around NSW.”
Jayda is currently the Vice-Captain of Sienna and is part of Tangara's 2017 School Leadership team. We wish her all the best in this program.
