Artefacts tour

TIM KELLY, a teacher from St Mary's High School in Casino, flew to Government House in Sydney to receive a Premier's Teachers Scholarship, sponsored by Westfield, to undertake a study tour of Syria, England and France.

Mr Kelly's study tour involves a site study of the ancient Roman city of Palmyra in the Syrian desert. Palmyra is World Heritage-listed and the European Union is involved in its development as a unique tourist destination.

After the Syrian leg, Mr Kelly will travel to London and Paris to trace some of the key artefacts from Palmyra located in various museums. While in Paris he will visit the UNESCO Headquarters to research the process of World Heritage listing.

St Mary's High School congratulates Mr Kelly on this magnificent opportunity.
