Cambridge youth MPs Meghana Gaddam and Sophia Goodrich travelled to the Beehive this week for New Zealand’s 10th youth parliament.
Gaddam represented Waikato MP Tim van de Molen, and Goodrich represented Taupō MP Louise Upston.
They were joined by Ōtorohanga’s Kahurangi Katipa-Maikuku and Te Awamutu College’s Brylee Gibbes who represented Angela Roberts and Barbara Kuriger.
Twenty four of the would-be politicians were given the opportunity to ask a minister a question in the House.
Gaddam asked the Minister of Health how the health system reforms address existing nationwide resource constraints in the health sector.
The youth parliamentarians time in Parliament concludes today with a debate on a mock minimum wage amendment bill, a general debate, and the presentation of select committee reports.
