The Grade 3/4 students went to the Melbourne Art Centre on Friday 20th April as part of their teaching and learning this Semester.

The excursion included a guided tour of the Melbourne Arts Centre, as well as watching a live performance of Andy Griffith’s ‘The 78- Storey Treehouse’.

Students admired breathtaking art work including aboriginal dot paintings, and even got access to VIP rooms & lounges.

Both staff and students had a sensational day!
