Children's Parliament

The Children’s Parliament of Alberton Primary School (CPAPS) is a group of children, elected by their peers, who take on further responsibilities across the school. Children in Years 5 and 6 prepare and present speeches to the school community to run for positions in the parliament. All children from Years 2-7 have voting rights and choose their leaders through a secret ballot. The other ministry members are children who have nominated for a particular ministry however don’t want a Minister or Deputy role. These class members have an opportunity to bring forward ideas and discuss any issues that arise during fortnightly community meetings. All CPAPS ministries have a staff advisor that they can turn to for advice and guidance if needed.


Children’s Parliament ministries are as follows

  • Aboriginal Nations Ministry

  • Sports Ministry

  • Environmental Affairs Ministry

  • Diversity Ministry

  • Community Affairs Ministry

  • Public Relations Ministry

  • Education Ministry


Each ministry is made up of a Minister, Deputy Minister and 6 Members. Along with our Ministries, we have a Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister, and Treasurer. Ministries meet at least 3 times a term to discuss any important issues and organise events.

Actions ministries have taken include raising funds for charities, organising school events like sports day and the school disco, creating a friendship bench on the playground, installing signs and bags for people cleaning up after their dogs and helping draft school policies.

We acknowledge this land where we play and work is the traditional lands of the Kaurna people and we respect their spiritual relationship with their country; the land, the creatures, the plants and waterways. We also acknowledge the Kaurna people as the custodians of the Adelaide region and that their cultural and heritage beliefs are still as important to the living Kaurna people today.  We respect their Elders past, present and future.
