I was fortunate enough to attend Prophet Elias' celebration for Sunday of Orthodoxy where they also opened the 33rd Christian Book & Icon Exhibition. Included in this exhibition was a great range of books that were suitable for a range of ages and definitely were a popular item on the day. Thank you to Father Stavros and his team for putting on a great event.
I hosted a joint forum with my Parliamentary Colleague, Vincent Tarzia, in conjunction with Alzheimer's Australia, where we heard from two great guest speakers, including Ian, who is living with dementia. It was great hearing from Ian and getting an insight into how he lives his life and the extra precautions he has to take.
It is that time of year again where schools are getting into the swing of their athletics carnivals. I was lucky enough to attend the St Ignatius Junior School Carnival. It was great to see so many students participating in the day's events.
It was great to host a year 8 class from Marden Open Access College in Parliament House this month. The students that attended loved hearing about the history of Parliament House and thoroughly enjoyed getting an insight into what happens on a day-to-day basis.
