Attending will be Mildura Senior College’s Madeline Barker, St Joseph’s College’s Nicholas Fasso-Opie, Red Cliffs Secondary College’s Kayla Adam and Robinvale P-12 College’s Lachlan Mitchell.

They were selected from 630 students statewide to be part of a delegation of 80 Victorian students from years 9 to 12.

About 14 teachers have been selected to chaperone the trip, including Hopetoun P-12 College’s Pamela Cupper.

Students were notified of their places on the trip in the past few weeks, but it was only announced publicly at a ceremony at Parliament House on Wednesday. Red Cliffs’ Kayla Adam said she couldn’t believe it when they chose her.

“I was really amazed at the fact that I got in – I can’t believe that a girl from Red Cliffs got in out of 630 other applicants,” she said.
