Gold Fever

As a part of their local history and Gold Mining unit Ms Beauchamp's year nine class participated in a number of excursions. They had the pleasure of exploring the Venus Battery and were very interested in how the gold was extracted from rock. Their next excursion led them to the information centre where they enjoyed a short film on local history and were captivated by the stock exchange arcade before heading to explore the Zara Clark museum, which was full of treasures to see. Their final excursion took them to the Miners Cottage where they experienced Gold Fever while panning for gold, many students wanted to keep panning long after it was time to head back to school.
