Canberra 2015 – Days 3&4

Yesterday was an extremely long and tiring day but the students enjoyed it more than any other day. We started with a 5:30am wake up call which thrilled everyone. We had a big brekky and then headed for Cooma where we stopped at the Snowy Hydro Education Centre to look at displays and watch a…
