Scouts SA

Mr DULUK (Waite) (15:40): I rise today to speak about the importance of local scouting in our community, and in particular those active scout groups in my electorate: Blackwood, Eden Hills, Belair and Mitcham. Scouts SA encourages children and their families to head outdoors and try new activities. It gives young people a chance to make a contribution to society and adults can also play a part by taking the chance to become suitable role models.

STEAM Education

Mr DULUK (Waite) (16:05): I rise today to talk about the very important subject of education and about STEM in our school system. We all know what STEM is. Today, the member for Florey talked about LAMP as well. They are two acronyms that are very important to the education of our future generations. STEM is based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines: science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Rather than teach four disciplines as separate subjects, there is an increased focus on integrating them into a cohesive learning program.
