Canberra Excursion 2016

Congratulations to all our wonderful students for their fabulous effort, participation and behaviour during our Canberra excursion. I hope you had a restful and relaxing weekend – enjoy all the photos below!

Our first stop was at Old Parliament House to the Australian Electoral Commission where we participated in a range of democracy and election activities.

We were very lucky to take part in the closing ceremony at the Australian War Memorial. Well done to Vincent and Phoebe who did a brilliant job laying a wreath on behalf of our school.

Enjoying the view from Mount Ainslie Lookout!

We enjoyed a fantastic night tour of the Dinosaur Museum and learnt all kinds of interesting facts and splurged in the awesome gift shop.

Great effort and questions from students as we toured the amazing artworks at the National Art Gallery.

We were so excited to watch a very thrilling question time in the House of Reps and enjoyed a tour of Parliament House and role play activities. We were also fortunate to meet our local member, Sharon Claydon!

Making some money (literally!) at the Mint.

Gorgeous 360 degree views from Telstra Tower!

An amazing evening visit to Questacon! So many fun and interactive science gadgets to explore.

Our Games Night was aptly titled Fashion, Funk and Fitness! Students had a great time working in groups to complete a range of hilarious challenges.

Our final event was a visit to the Australian Institute of Sport where we took part in a tour of the incredible facilities and put our sporting skills to the test in the Sportex arena.

What an amazing 3 days we had!
