Year 6 Canberra Excursion

Year 6 visit Canberra


Year 6 children have been studying government during Term 2. They will be going on their excursion to Canberra on Thursday and Friday of Week 8 this term. We know they are extremely excited about this excursion and we believe they will represent Sacred Heart with great pride. Mr. Mark Kennedy, Mr. Matt Brophy, Mrs. Brittany Hooper and Miss Monica Scarpin will accompany the children. We thank them for being so generous with their time.

While on this tour students will participate in a variety of educational programmes focused on Australia’s history, culture, heritage and democracy.

The Australian Government recognises the importance of all young Australians being able to visit their National Capital as part of their civics and citizenship education. To assist parents in meeting the cost of the excursion, the Australian Government is contributing funding under the Parliament and Civics Education Rebate (PACER) programme toward the travel expenses incurred. This contribution will be paid directly to the school upon completion of the excursion.

We would like to thank the Australian Government for their support of this programme. We hope that the excursion will be a rewarding experience for all students.
