On Monday 10 April, 27 Year 9 students attended our first camp/tour to the beautiful city of Melbourne.

For many students this was the first time they had travelled by plane and so there was quite a bit of excitement at our 6:30am pick-up.

The tour was designed to provide students with a real insight into one of Australia’s largest capital cities and all that it has to offer. We had a very full itinerary that included:

  • Melbourne Museum
  • Old Melbourne Gaol
  • Queen Victoria Market
  • MCG and National Sports Museum
  • Holden Centre – home of Collingwood football/netball teams and the Melbourne Rebels rugby team
  • Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre
  • St Kilda Beach and Luna Park area
  • Southbank
  • Melbourne Star Observation wheel
  • Shrine of Remembrance
  • Australian Centre for the Moving Image in Federation Square

The tour was an excellent blend of educational, sporting and cultural events. The students really enjoyed touring a busy city and learning how to travel on the very busy Melbourne tram network. They also enjoyed trying the many different foods that Melbourne has to offer.

It was a very enjoyable experience for both the teachers and the students. A perfect way to end a very busy Term 1.
