The LOTE Faculty at Mooroolbark College is very pleased to announce that a 5 day tour to South Australia has been organised. The trip is open to all interested Year 8 students, especially those intending to continue with their German studies. Students studying Chinese are also warmly invited.
The purpose of the trip is to study the history of German settlement, which began early last century in South Australia.
