The Year 6 camp will provide the students with an exciting, rewarding and interesting experience of Melbourne life.
Even though your child may have already been to Melbourne, going together as a group is an experience which they will never forget. As a learning community, we always look forward to this experience.We usually stay at the Miami Hotel, Hawke Street, West Melbourne.
