Mrs Pennington, Mrs Booth and the school principal, Mr Bowen, accompanied the students.
During their trip, students had the opportunity to visit some amazing places including the War Memorial, Telstra Tower, the National Electoral Centre, the National Museum of Australia and, of course, Parliament House.
There were also plenty of fun activities for students to learn more about science and sport as they visited Questacon and the Institute of Sport.
When the group were not out exploring, they stayed at the Canberra City YHA.
“My favourite part was learning new things like how to vote and the process involved, facts about the ANZACs and amazing science at Questacon. It was one of the best experiences of my life,” said one student.
This trip would not have been possible without the support of St Joseph’s High School, Aberdeen who kindly donated their 25-seater bus for the excursion, which was driven by Mr Bowen who also took on the role of tour guide during the trip.
The school thanks Robert Holstein and his school community for this generous offer.
