Trip to (Little) Italy

Year 9 students took a trip back in time and far, far away as they spent the day discovering all that is Italian in Leichhardt.

Historical anecdotes about life as an Italian migrant were mixed with the current appreciation of all that is Italian in Little Italy.

The students created their own Masterchef pizzas, and just in case they didn’t work out, there were also platters of pasta to enjoy. Needless to say, the pizzas were “buonissime” and there was still room for gelato. All of this was worked off in the brisk walk back to Petersham station.

What did the students think? “Totally fun!”, “I thought that the excursion was perfect.”, “I really liked the explanation given by Lily. She seemed very knowledgeable about her Italian background. I also very much liked the gelato.”
