6C's Family Heritage

Over the past few weeks 6C boys have been learning about Immigration.

Immigration is a vital feature of Australia's history and national identity. Since 1788, our population has been made up of both the original, indigenous inhabitants of the land and those who are here as a result of a journey - either in our lifetime or in our family history.

For two centuries millions of people have made the long journey across the oceans to Australia seeking fortune, opportunity and freedom.

All 6C boys thoroughly enjoyed creating their own handcrafted family tree and sharing some of the fascinating stories with the class about their parents, grandparents and further generations.

This gave the boys are more accurate insight into their own cultural background and a deeper understanding on reasons why people immigrate to other countries.
