After months of planning and coordination by the Middle Years teachers, our Year 6 students set off for an adventure to Canberra from 15 to 19 March 2021. For many of them, this was their first ever experience at the Nation’s Capital. Students were given the opportunity to participate in a variety of educational programs with a focus on Australia’s history, culture, heritage and democracy.
We extend a huge thank you to parents and caregivers, your assistance is greatly appreciated! We look forward to focusing further on our Government and Australia’s history as well as geography over the rest of the term.
The Australian Government recognises the importance of all young Australians being able to visit the national capital as part of their Civics and Citizenship education. The Australian Government is contributing funding of $45 per student under the Parliament and Civics Education Rebate program towards the camp costs. The rebate is paid directly to our College upon completion of the excursion. We are fortunate to have a government which recognises the importance of having students visit our Nation's Capital and to immerse the students in a relevant as well as interactive way to discover our Nation’s development and democratic values. We would like to take this opportunity to thank PACER for their financial support.
