What do David Speers, Laurie Oakes and Leigh Sales have in common with St Paul's Anglican Grammar School grade 6 students in Traralgon?
They all ask really tough questions!
Visiting local schools is one of my favourite jobs as a Member of Parliament because it gives me an insight to what young people in my community are thinking, and I also get to share a little bit about my job.
PS: I did answer the questions but we cut that from the video

Safety and security of Australians is our government's highest priority.
I met with the Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull along with the Attorney-General, Minister for Immigration and Border Protection Peter Dutton, the Minister for Counter-Terrorism Michael Keenan and the heads of our security agencies to discuss future arrangements.
The Australian Federal Police, ASIO, Border Force and the Office of Transport Security all work incredibly hard to keep Australians safe every day.
Since 2014, our agencies have disrupted 13 terrorist plots and charged 73 Australians with terrorism related offences.
The Prime Minister has announced these agencies will be brought together into the new Department of Home Affairs, similar to the UK model.
