4.2 Visiting dignitaries

When a dignitary, or politician other than the local Member of Parliament, plans to visit a school, the principal, Regional Executive Director and the Ministerial Services Unit must refer to the protocols and processes detailed in Appendix B.

Guidelines
  • The Protocols for Politicians and Candidates for an Election to Visit Public Schools in Western Australia should be referred to for the requirements for visiting dignitaries at schools.
  • Schools are not arenas for expressing political views or ideologies and staff and visitors, are expected to maintain an apolitical stance.
  • Visits that involve partisan or party political activity are not appropriate.
  • Local Members of Parliament (State or Federal) may communicate directly with schools located within their electorates.
  • Local Members of Parliament (State or Federal) are welcome at schools within their electorates at times convenient to the school and when it will not disrupt the school's normal activities.
