- experiencing the legislative process -
Basel Abdulla of Westview Freedom Academy is one of 107 high school students in Ontario chosen to participate in the Model Parliament this week in Toronto (Feb. 21-23).
Each year the Legislative Assembly of Ontario sponsors this 3 day event designed for civic-minded students who are interested in current events and provincial issues. Participants learn about and develop an appreciation for the history of the legislative process in Ontario through workshops and presentations. They also take part in a simulation of a session in the legislative chamber.
To be selected Basel completed an on-line application which included a 400-500 word essay on why he thought he would be a good candidate. He also had to illustrate his maturity, leadership skills and responsibility as well as strong interpersonal and social skills. Involvement in community and extra-curricular activities was also essential to his application.
