The students participating in RDA Central West's TEN4TEN Leadership Dialogue, including Canowindra's Claire Wright, took part in a special lunch organised this month at Hive Orange with Federal Member for Calare, Andrew Gee MP.
The lunch was organised in place of a previously planned trip to Australian Parliament House that was cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions.
RDA Central West CEO, Sam Harma said despite the change to the program, the lunch at Hive was a great success.
"Mr Gee not only offered an insight into the political world, but also shared the lessons he has learnt along the way and what he would tell his 17 year old self.
"He also encouraged the students to just have a go and follow their passion.
