Byron and Star have returned from an education tour of the national
capital. Our year six students were given the opportunity to participate in a
variety of educational programs with a focus on Australia’s history, culture,
heritage and democracy.
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 contributed
funding of $240 per student under the Parliament and Civics Education Rebate
program towards those costs.
