Year 5 Bathurst Excursion

Our Year 5 students have just returned from their excursion to the Bathurst Goldfields to learn about the Gold Rush era. The two day excursion included a stop at Scenic World in Katoomba and a visit to the old courthouse in Little Hartley. Students viewed the traditional gold mining equipment that the miners would have used in the 1800s, made damper and mud bricks and even got to pan for gold. We received many favourable compliments about the excellent behaviour of our students and their knowledge of the topic.
