Runner Excursion

Year 8 English ‘Runner’ excursion

Throughout Week 5 of Term 3, the Year 8’s attended the English excursion to the Melbourne CBD.  The cohort went in three groups, 8B & D on Monday, 8A on Wednesday and 8C & E on Thursday.  Students went on a walking tour of the sites from the novel we are studying, ‘Runner’, and were given a taste of our city post World War 1. We saw heritage buildings and stepped into the shoes of various characters from the novel.  We also toured some of the amazing graffiti art that our city has to offer.  During each excursion we walked around 8kms, which was a fantastic effort by both students and teachers, and we were lucky enough to dodge any rain for the entire week.  Well done to the students who attended, we had great feedback from the tour guides who were very impressed by their enthusiastic attitudes and excellent behavior.
