Year 10 students participated in a successful City Experience from Monday 22 to Wednesday 24 February. The venue for this camp at CYC City in Collins Street provided a high standard of accommodation and easy access to the CBD region. The camp incorporated a wide range of activities that aimed to develop personal skills and complement the school’s academic program while enjoying the experience of being in the city. Students visited the Old Melbourne Gaol and participated in a tour of the Watch House and an interactive courtroom drama. They also visited Parliament House and the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel. The staff from Urban Seed challenged stereotypes about homelessness in the inner city of Melbourne and the value of community. Students were also able to select from a range of electives including visits to the Digital Music Hub, Hardrock Climbing Centre, and the City Baths. Another highlight included the stage musical, ‘Ghost The Musical’ at The Regent Theatre.
