Year 7 Canberra Trip 2018 Day 6 – Perisher Snowfields

Snowfights

Today was the big highlight most students had been waiting for – our day in the snow at Perisher! We weren’t disappointed either, as there had been snowfall earlier in the week and it was a relatively warm day (if you can call 5° warm). After travelling nearly 3 hr to get there, our first port of call was the quadlift. This took up the mountain to the perfect spot for a snowfight. Students…

Bubble Neblua (NGC 7635)

Our learning extension students have recently been working on writing psalms as a response to God’s astronomical creation. Here are three of them:
