2015 Canberra - The Snow Day

The snow day is always the highlight of the trip. I know that may appear difficult to understand; accepting that students did have the opportunity of attending the High Court of Australia, seeing the ins and outs of our Federal Parliament and participating in the many other educational activities throughout the week - There is just something awesome about seeing snow everywhere!
The snow also appealed to those young and old. Mr Thieme was particularly excited as it was his first time in snow too.
Once again, students managed themselves very well. We can promise they will be ready for some down time when they return as they will have have been on the go for 32 of the previous 40 hours when we return home. (That's why you are missing student blogs this evening :)
It was a spectacular day in the Snowy Mountains, while there was little snow, the clear and relatively warm day day provided some great moments for all of us. The tobogganing was excellent and our students had lots of chances to go down the hill at Smiggins.
We then took the chair lift right to the top of Perisher and explored a little.
We are now ready for the final day in Canberra at Questacon and the National Museum. We look forward to seeing you all in about 24 hours time.
