Our Year 5 camp will also be in this term at a fabulous new location.The camp this year involves the children going to the Blood On the Southern Cross Show (light and sound spectacular), guided tour through different aspects of Sovereign Hill itself and a visit to the Gold Museum. This Camp is to support our topic that we are focusing on in this term which is looking at how Gold changed the development of Victoria the Eureka Uprising and its effects on Australia’s democracy.
