Orange campus students dig for gold!

After this excursion, electricity and internet were no longer taken for granted!

This term in History Years 5 & 6 have been studying “Golden Democracy”.

 

This has included learning about the Gold rush in our area in the early 1900’s. Miss Kendall and her 5/6 class have visited the Bathurst Goldfields and also Wentworth Gold Mine at Lucknow, where the students gained first-hand experience at various ways of living back in the Gold rush time. It was definitely an eye-opener to the students who take the supply of electricity and internet for granted!
