The Sydney Canberra Trip is a valuable learning experience in many ways, not just for its educational benefits, but also for the relationships that students build and the sense of community that they develop.
Our Year 6 students have been writing recounts about their experiences on the trip earlier this term and have shared the following with us.
The snow was the best, I enjoyed the toboggining and having a snow ball fight. When we came back, we got to relax and play ping pong. – Riley R
