Our Year 6 students enjoyed experiencing what a day in the life of being at high school is like at Callaghan College Waratah Campus today. They participated in a variety of lessons and enjoyed a sausage sizzle lunch. Such a beautiful group of students to take on an excursion for the day! Enjoy the photos below.
