The Year 10 Italian class visited Fremantle on Friday 3 March.
More than one third of Western Australia’s population was born overseas so, fittingly, students commenced their excursion at the Western Australian Maritime Museum.
The Museum is symbolic of Fremantle’s past, present and future and contains the Immigration Collection that documents maritime immigration into Western Australia.
After the self-guided Walking Trail tour outside the Museum, students explored Fremantle and read stories of migrations and discussed challenges and successes from these stories.
Students walked to Ristorante La Sosta, where Matteo Musetti and his staff cooked an authentic Italian lunch.
The excursion concluded with Italian gelato at Swan River Gelato – with everyone agreeing that it was a brilliant day!
