QUINTILIAN School’s year six students brushed up on their politics during the school’s annual trip to Canberra.

Principal Neil Collins said students spent a week in Canberra and immersed themselves in the nation’s capital.

“Students visited the National War Memorial, the Australian Institute of Sport, the National Film and Sound Archives and the National Art Gallery as well as spend a few days skiing,” he said.

“Experiential learning is paramount to our desire to allow our students to relate their learning to the real world.”

Member for Curtin and former Minister for Foreign Affairs Julie Bishop also took time out of her busy schedule to enjoy afternoon tea with the students.
