National Capital Tour
YEAR 7 - NATIONAL CAPITAL TOUR
The National Capital Tour (NCT) is an integral and vital aspect of the curriculum offered at Faith Lutheran College, Redlands. In the company of College staff and supervising parents, it takes in one day in Sydney, two days of touring the iconic highlights of Canberra and two days in the snow at Perisher Valley, in the Mt Kosciusko National Park. This year students will travel by air to Sydney and by bus to Canberra. This trip provides our students with valuable educational opportunities through:
- Experiencing first hand, the workings of the Federal Government by visiting the Parliament House Education Program and the Museum of Australian Democracy;
- Visiting Sydney Taronga Park Zoo, the Australian War Memorial, Questacon by Night, the Australian Institute of Sport, the Royal Australian Mint, Mt Ainslie Lookout, Embassies and other National icons; and
- The learning, challenge and practicing of new physical skills.
Through all of these new shared experiences a great sense of camaraderie, teamwork, cooperation, independence and time-management are nurtured, each contributing to the development of life skills. This experience for your child will provide a supportive environment, personal and group challenges, opportunity to develop in confidence and create life-long memories.
