Camp Canberra Virtual Experience – with author Krys Saclier (Stage 2, Stage 3)
Join Vote 4 Me and Camp Canberra author Krys Saclier as we explore Canberra, engage in a Q&A, plus take a whirlwind trip to visit some our most well known museums.
Students will have the opportunity to hear Krys read from her highly engaging and informative picture book Camp Canberra, as well as ask her questions. As part of this experience we will connect with some of the museums across the National Capital including the Parliamentary Education Office, National Portrait Gallery and Museum of Australian Democracy to explore objects, artworks and spaces.
This is a fantastic hook into exploring Civics and Citizenship.

Her third picture book, Camp Canberra, folllows the adventures of the students of Mt Mayhem Primary as they visit the attractions of the national capital, learning about government, history and roundabouts.
