The students thoroughly enjoyed their role play experience of dressing up and being in character throughout their two day excursion at Sovereign Hill.

The students attended St Peter’s Denominational School and were taught by Ma’am. The enjoyable activities included cursive writing on blackboards and with ink, reciting times tables, sewing and drawing. The best experiences were panning for gold at the creek and having the hilarious Pastor come to visit the school.

Each student fully demonstrated our school values and I proudly received compliments from visitors attending Sovereign Hill, highly commending the students’ behaviour. Each of us walked out feeling thankful for the lives we live in 2020, compared to the harsh times of the 1850s.
