Fifty-seven students from 29 schools are part of the Student Parliament that is currently sitting in Parliament.
Acting Permanent Secretary for Education Josefa Sania has advised the students to make the best use of this lifetime opportunity.
During the orientation, yesterday the participants were briefed on the rules of the House and the roles they will be taking up for the formal sitting today.
The Members of Parliament were selected though nominations and voting.
Basden Anglican College Deputy Headboy Jone Tawake is Prime Minister for the day while Lomaivuna High School Form 6 student Ratu Josaia Dradra Nabati is the Leader of Opposition.
Tawake says it’s a huge responsibility but he’s ready to shoulder it.
Nabati says although he is in the opposing team, he can handle it well.
The sitting finishes at 5.30pm.
