On Wednesday, 22 March Year 10 travelled to the Sydney suburb of Cabramatta as part of their studies of “Changing Australian Communities” in Australian Geography and “Migration History” in Australian History.
The fieldwork trip enabled students to experience Australia’s multiculturalism and in particular Cabramatta’s dynamic Vietnamese business community, first hand.
Students were given specific worksheets to complete in relation to a 10% Geography assessment task on “Changing Australian Communities”.
The Year 10’s benefited greatly from this enrichment opportunity. I would like to congratulate them all for their good behaviour and enthusiasm on the day.
The lunch in Vietnamese restaurants and the visit to the Tien Hau Buddhist Temple were particular highlights of the excursion. Students also enjoyed a selection of traditional Asian fruits for afternoon tea.
I would like to thank Mrs McAllister, Mrs Lacey, Mr Cant and Mr Feebrey for their help and support on what was a very enjoyable and educationally worthwhile day.
