Grade 5- Sovereign Hill Excursion

In Term 3, Grade 5 students learned about significant events which shaped Australia’s history, in particular, the Australian Gold Rush. On Wednesday the 7th September, the Grade 5 students, along with teachers and parents, travelled to Sovereign Hill, Ballarat.

Students participated in a variety of activities which gave them a taste of what life was like on the Goldfields in the 1850s Рsome even struck gold!
Students enjoyed panning for gold, touring through an underground mine, practicing calligraphy, participating in an educational session, viewing a gold pouring demonstration and of course, purchasing the world-famous ‘raspberry drops’ from the lolly shop.
Thank you to the parents and staff who assisted on the day and made the excursion an enjoyable experience for all!
