This past week,  32 excited grade 6 students went to canberra for our annual school trip. We went to the airport at 5 am to so were ready for our six AM  flight. it took us two planes to get to canberra and one stop in the middle. we arrived at canberra airport, got our luggage and went to our bus. fist we drove up mt ainslie to the lookout over canberra. our second stop was the war memorial. We saw lots of pictures, paintings, aircrafts,helicopters and the big wall of poppies and names outside. next we went to our campsite, peewee lodge. we  slept well and had an early breakfast. throughout the week we stopped at many different interesting places such as the art gallery, museum, questacon, parliament house,old parliament house, australian institute of sport , telstra tower and bowling. each night we returned back to peewee for the night then we were up early and on the road again in the morning. thursday morning we got up had breakfast and hit the road for sydney. im not exactly sure how long the bus trip was but it was worth the wait. when we arrived at sydney we stopped at the park for lunch. after that we walked to the opera house then jumped on the ferry. that night we stayed at a youth hostel in the city. Friday morning we walked to the ferry once again to visit the zoo. we saw an amazing amount of animals and took lots of photos. coming back  home was sad but so exciting to see family again.
