Politicians David Seymour, from Act New Zealand, Clare Curran, from Labour and the Speaker of the House Trevor Mallard, also from Labour visit the year 6 class of Macandrew Bay School June 28 2019.
The trio visited Macandrew Bay and Bathgate Park Schools as part of an outreach programme for schools that do not have easy access to the Beehive in Wellington.
A mock chamber session, which lasted an hour, gave pupils the chance to learn how Parliament worked.
Politicians were asked largely environment-centred questions, but also about over-population, birthing units, and what Parliament smelled like.
Ten-year-old pupil Margot Latton said her favourite part was when the politicians said funny things to each other during the debate, and she had a very fun morning.
Mr Mallard said the children asked sensible and important questions.
It was good for the children to hear how Parliament worked from different perspectives.
"Having a range of people involved, it means you can do the parliamentary stuff without being political."
