Labour Day Holiday

Labour day Australia

To celebrate Labour Day in Victoria, Ashton College will be closed on Monday 08 March 2021.

The Workday Revolution uses the introduction of the 8-hour workday – a significant moment in Victoria’s parliamentary history – as a starting point for investigating how workers of the day rallied together to fight for fairer working conditions, something many of us are still benefitting from today.

Students are suggested, having a better understanding of Australian culture, to visit Parliament of Victoria to see how young Tommy’s life improved with the introduction of the eight-hour workday in Victoria. Find out how his dad and his workmates agitated for a fair go.
