Three things that I learned are NZ parliament are:
In dictatorship you can not chose you own movies and if you criticize the leader you will be put in jail. I learnt that a lot of debating happens in the house and John Key sits in the fourth seat on the right. It's not just one party in the house it is other parties too.

Student Led Conference

The things I enjoyed most about my SLC were: Getting great feedback and reaction from my dad.

What went well and why? Showing him my test result and what it means because i was a bit hesitant about mucking up.

What were the challenges you faced when preparing and presenting your SLC? Because i'm new I had to delete some slides and think up a way to make specific slides work and still sound professional at the same time.

What changes would you make for next time and why?
Make the Whole thing a bit longer because i finished it early and had to give my dad a tour of my class to kill time.
