Grade 6 Canberra Camp

Grade 6 Canberra Camp

On the 19th to the 23rd of March us Grade 6’s had the wonderful chance to go to Canberra for camp. The activities were very interesting. The highlights of the camp were having an awesome time at Parliament House where we were able to explore the House of Representatives, act in a role play and the best of all was getting to go into our local member Tony Smith’s office. Another highlight was visiting Questacon where many rooms were filled with interesting Science experiments and facts that we were able to try out. Freefall was a favourite because you would go up to the top of this massive slide and drop from a pole. You felt like you were flying! Our last favourite activity was visiting the High Court where we watched a sitting. They were discussing at topic which was too secret to talk about and is still in progress!

We thank our teachers for being amazing for organising everything and we were blessed they took us in their own time and provided us with so many opportunities. We hope next years Grade 6’s enjoy the trip just as much as we did.

Nivia Robinson and Max Caruana represented Ruskin Park at the Montrose District Tennis competition on the 26th of April at the Mt Evelyn Tennis Club. Both students put in a great effort on the day and displayed fantastic sportsmanship. This event is unique as the players need to umpire and score their own games. We are very proud of how these two students conducted themselves on the day.
