In late November, the Parliament of Western Australia hosted the annual Australasian Parliamentary Educators Conference (APEC), welcoming local educators and those from interstate, New Zealand and the Pacific Island Parliaments. The conference theme was ‘Defending Democracy through Civics Education’, focusing on the critical role of parliamentary education in preserving and strengthening democratic societies.

The keynote address was presented by Mrs Darrilyn Dawson, the wife of the Governor of Western Australia, His Excellency the Honourable Chris Dawson AC APM. Mrs Dawson has extensive experience as an educator and encouraged the promotion of active participation, critical thinking and a sense of civic duty in educating our future generations.
The conference was held in the ornate Legislative Assembly, where our Presiding Officers also shared their insights into the importance of civics education during the opening and closing of APEC 2023.
