When given the chance to choose improvements for the school and Alma community, the senior government class chose to focus on building and improving sporting facilities.

The process begins with each student suggesting five possible bills. Once the list is combined the class begins to debate and narrow down to their top three overall. Along with debating which bills to push, students have to plan out all the possible questions the bills need to address.
