Multicultural City Excursion
From August 7 – August 10, Year 9 Students travelled into the City to have a multicultural experience.
Our class gathered at Springvale Station to prepare for our journey to Flinders Station via the City Loop Train.
We Arrived at the NGV Gallery and looked around at all the art. They were categorised into different sections. They had an area dedicated to Shakespeare, Modern Art and Ancient Art.
During lunchtime were able to go around the city and try different cultural foods. This was a great way to try new foods.
The City Tour provided an interesting journey through various destinations, each of which offered valuable insight into the rich history of Australia.
After our tour of the city ended, we stopped at the Queen Victoria building to take a group picture of all the classes that participated on that day, while we each held a different country flag.
Once it was time to leave all classes made their way to the train station. The trains were running a bit behind so we had to take two or three trains to get back to Springvale Station.
At he start of the excursion, we had a tour around Melbourne City with our tour guide, Isabelle. She showed us many unique statues and art, with the history behind each one.
For lunch I went with my friends to Superhiro, a Japanese restaurant. I ordered the Teishoku, which was a set of different foods from their culture. The set included unagi, takoyaki, spring rolls, nasu tofu and miso soup. Overall, the food was delicious and I had a very nice experience.
At the National Gallery of Victoria, we went around and observed a variety of different artworks, with the meaning and history behind each one. This specific art was Pepper’s Ghost Effect, which changed based on the viewer’s perspective.
