Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith congratulates Hartley Dhyon on being selected as the YMCA New South Wales Youth Parliament representative for Penrith.
Hartley, of Emu Heights is looking forward to visiting Parliament and learning more about the parliamentary process including writing bills and experiencing what is like to be a Member of Parliament.
“Hartley is an enthusiastic, well-articulated young man and will be a great representative for Penrith. “said Stuart Ayres.
In 2012 & 2013 Hartley was elected to the Student Representative Council of St Dominic’s College and also represented his school at the Catholic Schools Debating Association during those same years. He is keen to refine his leadership skills so that he may use them in future programs and possibly one day in Parliament.
“It has been my pleasure to nominate Hartley for this rewarding program.” added Stuart Ayres.
The YMCA NSW Youth Parliament is a program that offers young people aged 15-18 a way to put across their ideas about issues that concern them. It is a program where the opinions and concerns of young people in NSW are heard by those who have the power to make laws.
Young people can be nominated for Youth Parliament by Members of the NSW Parliament or apply directly to take part in the program.
