For the second year in a row, Glenaeon has combined History & Sport to create a wonderful cross-curricular experience for our students to visit museums in Canberra followed by a ski trip.
Last Thursday morning 45 keen Year 9 and Year 10 students set out and visited The Australian War Memorial, The Royal Australian Mint and Australian Parliament House, taking in tours to learn about our history, our monetary system and saw in Parliament House the place where policies are discussed and laws made.
While some students returned home via train, the majority headed on to the snowfields of the Australian Alps, the Snowy Mountains.
Those who were already good on their boards and skis tackled really steep runs, black runs and improved their existing skills, massively demonstrated in pictures and video clips they shared. It was an overall success thanks to the kindness of host Igor and the great team of teachers (Mr Cordiner, Ms Rees, Donna and I) looking after every aspect of student welfare and delivering an outdoor learning experience most of the students will never ever forget.
It was a wonderful experience, creating memories that will turn into a growing confidence in our valued students.
Bring on 2020!
