Last week, a number of our Primary students participated in some exciting activities and excursions. Our Year 3 students visited the Cairns Museum, Art Gallery and Esplanade. They have been studying change over time in our local area and, at each of these sites, the students were able to see first-hand the changes to both our natural and built environment that they have been learning about in class.
Our Year 2 students have been learning about the Kuranda Railway, and its significance as a major engineering feat and mode of transportation in early Cairns. The students have also been studying the geography of our local area and our First Nations people’s connection to land. Therefore, a visit to Rainforestation was another highlight of their day.
Our Prep classes were delighted with a visit to the College by some of our native Australian animals. The students loved learning and even touching some of the animals found in our local environment.
