Year 5 Colonies Incursion
The year 5 students have been studying what Colonial life was like in Australia. After learning about early Tasmania (Van Dieman’s Land) we went back in time on Thursday to experience the process of convict settlement.
The students were informed and entertained with an interactive dramatic performance. Students were taken back to 18th Century England and transformed into convicts for the day. After being put into boats, they were shipped to Australia to experience life as a convict in the new colony.
Special thanks to the brave students who participated in the performance!
