A special visitor for Campbell High School

Photo: ABC News

This morning Campbell High School hosted a brief visit by US President Barack Obama and Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard. The school is located close to the Australian War Memorial, where President Obama laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at 9am, before speaking to Parliament. It's been a whirlwind visit to Canberra - less than 24 hours - with very tight security. Obviously I wasn't getting anywhere near him, so this photo comes from the Australian Broadcasting Commission website (more stories, photos and video here).

Darwin and a spot of croc-wrestling (hah!) are next on the agenda ...

Incredible experience for these school pupils. Not often you could post a photo and I would recognize two people in it.
