Online Learning

Virtual Classroom

​​​​​​​With fieldtrips cancelled for the foreseeable future, school groups can still visit the Parliament Buildings virtually! The new Virtual Classroom program provides students with an opportunity to learn about the Legislative Assembly in a fun and engaging way. ​The interactive presentation is hosted by one of our Parliamentary Tour Guides and includes lots of fun stories and many interesting photos of the Parliament Buildings from the time of its construction up to today. Students will learn about the key people who work in the Legislative Assembly, how a bill becomes a law, and the important symbols of the Legislative Assembly.​

Comments from teachers:

My students and I really enjoyed the whole program and we wouldn't have had this opportunity without the virtual program!

It was a very good experience, exceeded expectations. The virtual tour presenter was very engaging, entertaining and knowledgeable. He really made the topic interesting for the kids and they learned a lot.
