Federal Member for Gippsland Darren Chester visited Maffra Primary School to talk with Grade 5 and 6 students about Australia’s political system and provide insight into his work as a parliamentarian.

“I spoke to students about my role as a Member of Parliament and how we get things done in our community,” Mr Chester said.

“They asked a range of questions, including my responsibilities as the Federal Member for Gippsland, my journey into politics, achievements, as well as percipient queries about local issues.”

Mr Chester said he always enjoys speaking with young local learners and hearing about issues they are interested in.

“It’s amazing how much our young Gippslanders care for the region and the issues that could affect them,” Mr Chester said.

“One of the best parts of my job is visiting local schools, speaking with students and helping them understand what their local Member of Parliament does and how I am working to support the community on a daily basis.”
