St Pat’s gets royal treat­ment

Western Times - - NEWS -

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.
