Year 6 Canberra Tour

Last week, the Year 6 students and eight staff members spent the week in Canberra visiting the National Capital’s various attractions. Highlights included seeing both houses of parliament sitting and in full operation, meeting our Governor General Sir Peter Cosgrove and being part of the War Memorial’s Closing Ceremony. Another great aspect of the program was having Mr Glen Heinz (father of Sophia in Year 6) as the pilot and captain of the plane that we flew back to Brisbane on. Many members of the public commented on how well the students represented themselves and the College.


Year 6 students will make a presentation about their experiences at next Tuesday’s College assembly.

The National Capital Tour was undertaken with assistance from the Federal Government as part of their PACER (Parliament and Civics Educational Rebate) program.
