Community News.......

Welcome back to school for the second half of our school year. It has been a very quiet week with our senior students away on camp at Sovereign Hill in Ballarat. They have had a truly unique experience and will no doubt come home full of learning. They have had a week away from their ipads, televisions and much of what the twenty-first century offers.

Instead, they have dressed in 1850's costumes, attended classrooms set up as they were in the gold rush days. They sat in rows and used slates or quills and ink. The boys doffed their caps to show respect and let the girls go into class first. All adults were addressed as Sir or Ma'am. They watched gold being smelted and candles poured, toured an underground mine and learnt the story of the Eureka Stockade at the Light and Sound Show. Last night the students attended an old fashioned pantomime in the Sovereign Hill Theatre.

Last term, the students studied Australian History in class, but no amount of classroom work or internet research could replace this real life immersion, to help the students really connect with this period in our history.
