St Pat's pupils get the royal treatment in capital

ST PATRICK'S Catholic Primary School's Year 6 pupils have participated in a whirlwind educational journey to the nation's capital, visiting some famous faces along the way.

Students farewelled parents and carers in St George on Sunday night before embarking on an adventure of a lifetime.

The class reached Canberra on Monday, where they visited the Museum of Australian Democracy and learned about Australia's first female senator, Dorothy Tangney, and Australia's first indigenous senator, Neville Bonner.

At the museum, the pupils were able to apply everything they had learned in class into real-life experience.

In an exciting opportunity, the students met with his Excellency, Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove at Government House.

Students were then able to let their hair down and enjoy all the scientific thrills at The National Science and Technology Centre, better known as Questacon.
