Year 6 On The Trip Of A Lifetime

18 students, 2 teachers and 8 parents! No, it’s not the start of a joke but that’s who headed to Sydney and Canberra recently, which for many of the students was the trip of a lifetime!
For the first time, the group flew down to Sydney and then made their way by bus to the Nation’s capital. For some of the students it was their first experience on a plane! What a great way to start what was to be a fantastic week!
Highlights of the time in Sydney included a walk across the Sydney Harbour Bridge, a visit to Mary Mackillop House and the Taronga Zoo, which provided plenty of opportunities for selfies!
In Canberra, the sightseeing list was long. Parliament House, the Royal Australian Mint, the National Gallery, the National Museum, the High Court, Telstra Tower and the AIS to name just a few places visited with Questacon and the Australian War Memorial real highlights for the students.
The group also went ten pin bowling, rock climbing and did the mandatory rolling down the hill of Parliament House. A lot of fun for the students though Mr. Tickle, the Year 6 teacher, might have enjoyed these activities too!
Tony Hunter, Principal, “Our trip was a highlight for the students of their primary school years. It reinforced the work that they were doing in class on Democracy and ensured that they have a firmer grasp on our political system after visiting Parliament House and being hosted by our Federal Member, Mr Kevin Hogan. The students were wonderful ambassadors of our school and many of the people at various venues commented on their behaviour and manners. We very much look forward to planning for future experiences.”
