Calling all Year 5 and Year 6 students. Come on Faith’s first ever Canberra trip! This is your opportunity to travel on a plane interstate to learn about the history of our great nation while building friendships and skills of independence.

This trip aligns with the Civics and Citizenship sub-strand of HASS, where students study the key institutions of Australia’s democratic government. Together, with teaching staff, they will examine Australian citizenship and reflect on the rights and responsibilities that being a citizen entails, and explore the obligations that people may have as global citizens. If history, civics or adventure inspire you be sure to register your interest in the 2024 Canberra trip.
