Exit Point Year 4: Champions for Change

There is election fever at Birralee today!

The Year 4 students have formed political parties and have collaborated together to develop manifestos and political posters. This morning, the political party leades delivered their speeches during their Exit Point on the unit Champions for Change.

Thank you to all parents who turned up and voted!

Unit Summary: Champions for Change
