Canberra Visit

Integral to the Civics and Citizenship program at Athelstone School is the biennial Year 6/7 camp to Canberra, our Nation’s Capital.  This four day, three night opportunity is offered to students in Year 6 and Year 7 every second year. 

Students actively participate in ‘hands on learning’ in:

  • Civics and Citizenship through visits to Parliament House, The Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House and the Electoral Education Centre;
  • History through visits to the National Museum of Australia, The Australian War Memorial and the Royal Australian Mint;
  • Science through a visit to Questacon, the national Science and Technology Centre

As well as a range of other learning experiences connected to Health and PE, Geography and the Arts.

The next Canberra camp is scheduled for 2019.
