Year 6 Multicultural Experience A Huge Success

Last Tuesday 18 August, our Year 6 students enjoyed a multicultural exploration of the city.

They started at Victoria Market, and visited many landmarks including  Chinatown, Hosier Lane, Flinders Street,  and The Block and Royal Arcades.

The aim was for students to come away with an understanding of the cultural and historical significance of Melbourne and its links to multiculturalism.

Each group devised a map and route to follow on the day, taking in buildings and places of significance. Students recorded notes and observations, and took photos.

The day was a huge success with students gaining many wonderful insights and enjoying tastes of other cultures.
