There are nine Departments within Newtown Public School's Student Parliament. Each year Ministers and Assistant Ministers from each Department meet to discuss what will be their collective goal for the year, how they will support the school to achieve its strategic direction. Each Department will then plan how (THE ACTION) they will achieve the shared parliamentary direction (THE GOAL).
