Dear primary teachers,

I am delighted to be able to offer you this education resource developed by the National Capital Authority (Canberra).

The mission of the National Capital Authority is to build the National Capital in the hearts of all Australians. The Story of our Nation's Capital - A National Capital Exhibition Education Resource Kit will make a strong contribution to the achievement of this goal by giving young Australians an opportunity to learn about the history of Canberra, and the unique and important role the city plays as our nation's capital.

I do hope that you and your students will enjoy the many activities available in this resource and, as a result, plan a visit to the National Capital Exhibition in our capital.

We would appreciate your comments and look forward to your visit.
