Democracy in Action – Parliamentary Privilege!

Last week our politics students were excited to have the opportunity to enter our National Parliament in Vienna! We were delighted to have a guided tour from one of our Parliament representatives; Jan Krainer of the SPO who even gave a speech that day in parliament! After getting a special private concert on the infamous piano from our very own Ha Anh; we wandered around taking in the Roman & Greek influences in the various parliamentary chambers. We were also lucky to be able to watch one debate in action while the various parties discussed the importance of cash as legal tender. It was a great day all round and the students learned a lot about our democratic system!

Special thanks to Jan Krainer for taking the time out of his busy day to show us around as well as Mr Kozak, Mr Ó Cribín & Ms Kettemann for organising and arranging it!!
