During the mid-term break 26 students from St Margaret’s and Berwick Grammar School participated in the Central Australia Trip. They visited Coober Pedy, where students learned about the history of the mining town, saw the sunset at the Breakaways and stayed in underground accommodation.
In Alice Springs the students visited the Telegraph Station and toured the period buildings. They were also hosted by a youth group where the students interacted with local children in a basketball competition, art and crafts session and a drumming lesson.
The next stop was Kings Canyon! The students were amazed by the views during the rim walk and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Uluru and Kata Tjuta was the final destination of the trip. Here the students witnessed a breathtaking sunset, learnt all about the Aboriginal culture of the area and participated in a walk around Uluru.
