On Wednesday 17 October, the Year 5 students were fortunate enough to participate in an Italian excursion. The students travelled to the city to Visit Lake Vasto and the Italian monument dedicated to Italian migrants who came to Australia from Perth’s sister City: La Citta` di Vasto”, in Abruzzo region in the centre of Italy. Students had the opportunity to learn about the Italian migration to Western Australia.
Students also learned about Italian culture at the Laguna Bocce Club in Dianella. The Laguna Bocce Club represents the Region of Veneto in North of Italy. The members of the Club taught students and teachers how to play Italian Bocce. Everyone really enjoyed the challenge and the experience. It was so much fun! All the members of the Laguna Club were amazing! They made us feel very welcome.
After, the students enjoyed a delicious Italian home-made lunch provided by the Club. The students engaged in discussions about the history of the club and how challenging it was to migrate to Australia. Students had the opportunity to practice their Italian in an authentic and meaningful way.
