Highlights and Experiences of Year 6 Canberra Trip
Date: May 28, 2018
Year 6 students from our College have recently undertaken an education tour of the national capital. Students have been given the opportunity to participate in a variety of educational programs with a focus on Australia’s history, culture, heritage and democracy.
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. To assist families in meeting the cost of the excursion, the Australian Government contributes funding of $60 per student under the Parliament and Civics Education Rebate program towards those costs. The rebate is paid directly to the school upon completion of the excursion. This money has been attributed in entirety to reduce the amount paid by each family.
Here is a recount of some of the students’ experiences and highlights of their trip:
