Trinity news: Year 6 boys visit CanberraBy Year 6 students Ahmad Ammoura and Gaby Martino

In Trinity news, Year 6 recently visited Canberra for a three-day trip as part of their Civics and Citizenship education. Here’s a report from two of our students Ahmad Ammoura and Gaby Martino:

We had the most wonderful time in Canberra recently. It was a busy three-day trip filled with fun activities and times to share meals with our friends. Some definite highlights were – The Exhibition Centre, The War Memorial, AIS, The Mint, Parliament House, High Court, The ANZAC Walk and Questacon.  The tour around the War Memorial was emotional and interesting to learn about how Australian soldiers sacrificed their lives for the future of our country. 

Furthermore, we visited the Australian Institute of Sport and observed how strong and motivated many athletes are and learnt how hard they train. AMAZING!

The Australian Parliament House was fascinating.  It was a glorious day and we were given the opportunity to go up and see the flag pole. Do you know how big the flag is that stands on top of Parliament House and how often it needs to be replaced?  We were told it is bigger than the bus that drove us to Canberra and needs to be replaced every six months.

The Australian Government recognises the importance of all young Australians being able to visit the national capital as part of their Civics and Citizenship Education. To assist families in meeting the cost of the excursion, the Australian Government generously contributes funds under the Parliament and Civics Education Rebate Programme towards those costs.

Trinity provides an abundance of opportunities which nurtures boys to grow into men who are clear and passionate about their unique talents. We actively encourage our students to grow in wisdom and stature and in favour with God and man, in order that they may become responsible, contributing members of society.

We aim to help boys discover their innate talents and unlock their full potential within the context of a supportive Christian environment. We have guided boys to grow in mind, body and spirit for over a century and we know what boys need to truly flourish and succeed.

To experience Trinity for yourself and to find out why we are one of the top schools for boys in Sydney, register for our open day.
