It’s Family Fun Day at Parliament these school holidays! Ghosts of Our Colonial Past

Friday, 11 August 2017

The Member for Lane Cove, Anthony Roberts, says there is an “important date” school students, parents and teachers should put into their diary.

“It’s time again for the annual October holiday event – Family Fun Day on Friday 6 October!”

“Now in its eighth year Family Fun Day will be as unique, entertaining and as fun as it has been in past years. The event is renowned for its highly entertaining theatrical re-enactments,” he says.

This year some very special ‘ghosts’ from the Parliament’s past will engage visitors with intriguing stories.

“Children and adults can visit the Legislative Chambers and take their seat on the benches.”

“Other highlights on the day include arts and crafts, story-telling, role plays, guessing competition, children’s trail, and the opportunity to visit areas rarely open to the public.”

“Come to Family Fun Day, it’s a unique opportunity for the whole family to learn a little more about Australia’s oldest parliament and its history,” concluded Mr Roberts.
