Sydney/Canberra Cultural Tour

On Sunday 18 August, 108 of our Year 6 students embarked on a six-day trip to Sydney and Canberra by bus. The bulk of the places visited directly linked to classroom lines of inquiry, which brought the students’ learning to life.

During the 2019 Cultural Tour, students enjoyed visiting:

• Parliament House
• Australian War Memorial
• Questacon
• Old Parliament House
• Australian Institute of Sport
• Government House
• Mount Ainslie Lookout
• National Museum of Australia
• Perisher Snow Fields
• Circular Quay in Sydney
• Taronga Park Zoo

There are many people who need to be thanked for making this year’s trip one of the best yet. Thank you to our wonderful staff who accompanied our students on the trip – Ms Connor, Ms Bertoli, Ms Haslam, Ms Leatherbarrow, Ms Pearn and Mr Loriaux

We also need to thank the Federal Government who recognise the importance of all young Australians being able to visit the national capital as part of their Civics and Citizenship education. To assist families in meeting the cost of the excursion, the Australian Government contributed $60 per student under the Parliament and Civics Education Rebate program. The rebate is paid directly to the school upon completion of the excursion.
