In term 3 week 8 Years 5 and 6 attended an
overnight excursion at the Sydney
Y Hotel. We visited many historic landmarks
that many students haven't visited before. This
was a very good chance for us to discover
more about Sydney and its history.
Throughout the walk in Hyde Park we had
discovered many interesting facts about Hyde
Park such as Hyde Park used to be a sporting
ground and a Horse Racing Track. We saw
many statues of famous people like Captain
Author Phillip and we also saw a cannon!
We were very lucky to visit the NSW
Art Gallery as it was an amazing
experience. The students were very
surprised with the paintings,
sculptures, buildings and more ! Even
the early Australian paintings were
realistic and looked like they had
taken a photo!
 At
State Parliament we had lots of fun as
we watched question time. It was very
exciting to see the two sides using childish
behaviour towards each other! We also saw
Kristina Keneally and we met Mr Greg Piper
the independent member of lake
 After
State Parliament we had walked to the
rocks and we saw some historic, sandstone
buildings that were quarried by hands from
the convicts. There were wavy patterns in
the sandstone.
 After
The Rocks we visited Darling Harbour
and unfortunately it was very windy and was
sprinkling. We had decided that we would go
to the Imax theatre first before we went to
China Town to have dinner. At the Imax
theatre we watched Hubble in 3D. It was a
story about a telescope that launched into
space and the problems in the future.
Next we went to
Chinatown for dinner
and had some really
interesting food luckily,
some children did not
have to eat Chinese as
there was fish and
chips in Chinatown.
 On
day 2 the students walked through Hyde
Park towards the Barracks. When we had
finally got there we waited for a while until
our tour guides were ready to take us on a
new journey! Hyde Park Barracks was a jail
for the convicts that were men.
 At
Manly Beach we had lunch and free time
on the sand. The Y Hotel had provided us
lunch which included a sandwich, a piece of
fruit, a popper and a piece of fruit cake.
Many students had lots of fun at the beach
and couldn't wait for the next feature of the
The next feature was amazing it was the walk
across the HABOUR BRIDGE!!! We got four
seasons which included a very windy and cool
breeze, next was hail, torrential rain and the
sun came out! Everyone was soaking wet and
we were all laughing!
 Finally
we went to the Zoo by coach. The zoo
had provided us dinner and drinks. after that
we went on a twilight safari and saw many
amazing animals such as the Zebra, the
Komodo Dragon and also the Giraffe.
