A group of students and teachers from Queen Ethelburgas Collegiate in North Yorkshire have just returned from a life changing trip to Australia. 

And yes we're very jealous!

From traditional barbecues on Manly beach to famous sightseeing around Sydney Harbour, from ranching with horses to escapism in the Blue Mountains, the select group of eleven Queen Ethelburgas Collegiate students have gained some unforgettable memories in their two week trip to the other side of the world. 

So what did those who went along say they learnt from the trip?

As well as developing teamwork and leadership skills discovering a new culture has given them a different outlook on life. And dealing with creepy crawlies, insect bites and incredibly hot Australian sunshine has also educated them on some of the everyday elements of the continent.

Beth Parsons from Stray FM's Family Show went to meet Lara and Harry two students from Queen Ethelburgas Collegiate along with Year 3 teacher Mrs. Clark to find out more about their trip to Australia.
