Whirlwind excursion to nation's capital

The excitement was palpable this week at Caloundra Christian College, as 57 students and 5 teachers headed off to Brisbane to board the plane to Sydney. It was the Year 7 and 8 camp, a huge journey of discovery for these children as they visited Sydney, Canberra, and of course the snow, before flying back to Brisbane in a whirlwind, week-long, tour.
The students had fun making their own earthquake at the GeoScience Centre, and visiting the Australian War Memorial, where the volunteers congratulated the students for their excellent behaviour. Then it was on to the CSIRO and Parliament House, where the students had an awesome time.
“Our tour guide commented how well behaved our students are,” was the comment that accompanied the formal photos, posted onto the college Facebook page. Canberra Deep Space Station visit was next, followed by the Australian Institute of Sport, and then the National Museum. The last stop in Canberra was Questacon.
“The students were so excited to visit here and they were certainly not disappointed. It was so interactive,” said Mr. Derek Hughes, Head of Middle School.
After a delayed flight home, some very exhausted children, and their teachers, were happy to sleep in their own beds again!
