Bi-annual Canberra Trip The Grade 5 and 6 students enjoy a very busy week in Canberra. There is a lot happening all the time so it is great to be there. Students meet with a local politican and even Mr Rudd introduced himself to Mr Nicholas one year! The plane flight to Canberra is always a highlight as there are generally some students who have not been in an aircraft before.
