Early this morning our Year 6 boys accompanied by Mrs Neilson, Mrs MacDonald and Mr Kenny boarded a QANTAS plane at 8.30am and were given a special welcome to “the boys of Tintern Grammar’ over the PA by the Captain.
After a smooth flight, a hearty MacDonald’s breakfast, they were off to see the sights of Canberra!!!
Today they visited the Electoral Education Centre and have just finished at the War Memorial where our boys were involved in a very moving Wreath laying service and located and remembered their researched soldier on the walls.
Mr Kenny reports the weather is beautiful and our Year 6 boys are wonderful ambassadors.
Our weary travellers are about to visit the Royal Australian Mint before heading to the Greenhill’s conference centre.
We look forward to welcoming them all back here on Friday
