St Pat’s gets royal treatment
ST PATRICK’S Catholic Primary School’s Year 6 pupils have participated in a whirlwind educational journey to the nation’s capital, meeting with some famous faces along the way.
Students farewelled parents and carers in St George on Sunday night before embarking on an adventure of a lifetime.
The class arrived on Monday in Canberra, where they visited the Museum of Australian Democracy and learned about, among other things, Australia’s first female senator, Dorothy Tangney, and the nation’s first indigenous senator, Neville Bonner.
At the museum the pupils were able to apply everything they had learned in class to real-life experience.
In an exciting opportunity, the students met with His Excellency, GovernorGeneral Sir Peter Cosgrove at Government House.
Students were then able to let their hair down and enjoy all the scientific thrills at The National Science and Technology Centre.
