Dear Parents and Carers,

Year 6 Canberra Trip

Our year 6 students had an amazing time experiencing Canberra. Students were immersed in hand on experiences that helped them understand democracy, government, culture, city planning and indigenous perspectives. Our students represented Calvary with pride and were complimented on their behaviour and engagement everywhere that they went. We thank the families for sending their students and the teachers who attended this camp.



As the weather cools we expect to see more students opting for warmer uniform choices. Please be reminded that the formal purple jumper is to be worn with the formal uniform and green sports jacket with the sports uniform. Make sure all items are clearly named, so that we can get misplaced items back to their owners.
