Dreamtime at the G


Miriam Palmer, Edward Robertson, Chris Evers and Rikisha Cummins departed Palm Island on Wednesday afternoon the 22nd of May for an 8 day adventure of southern Victoria.  These students were selected for this reward trip for their outstanding attendance and commitment to improved behaviour and literacy.

The Horizon Tour of Melbourne is offered to 4 year 5-7 students each year by the Cathy Freeman Foundation (CFF).  These deserving students spent their time in Melbourne visiting sponsors and friends of the CFF, which included Credit Suisse, Kinfolk Café, Victorian Institute of Sport, SEEK and Channel 9.  We were invited into their workplaces and got a first hand experience of the daily lives of highly successful business men and women.

As well as visiting the corporate world of Melbourne, the students experienced the social/sporting side of Melbourne.  We were in awe of the size, passion and noise generated by the Dreamtime at the G AFL game in front of 85000 people.  They enjoyed the coastal sea-change when they were guests of the Cottage By The Sea; swimming and surfing were definite highlights.

After 8 jam-packed days the students were ready to return home, but take with them lifelong memories and experiences that make them more 2-Way Strong.
