The Leeton branch of the Country Women's Association enjoyed their annual visit to Parkview Public School on Tuesday as part of their yearly country of study exercise at the school.

This year's country of study was one of Australia's nearest and newest neighbours, with East Timor in focus. Year 6 students presented a range of information impressively presented utilising Smart Notebook software at presented to the gathering via varying means including verbal instruction, desktop display and group presentation via Interactive Whiteboard.

Year 6 teacher Matthew Collins was very happy with the way the research and presentation learning experience went. "It is always a great opportunity for our students to prepare and present for the ladies of the CWA. Our kids have really been working on their presentation skills and the delivery of the information they uncover, so to be able to put those skills on display for a captive audience, and one that they are not familiar with is a terrific life experience. I am pretty sure the ladies really enjoy interacting with the kids and viewing the ever expanding technological skills that today's children possess."

As always, the CWA members provided a delicious morning tea for the Year 6 students and spent time chatting with the children and staff as part of what is a highly valued day on the Parkview PS Calendar.
