The Victorian Goldfields

Last term all grade 5/6 students at NGPS totally immersed themselves into  discovering what it was like living and working on  the Victorian  goldfields during the 1850’s.

We wrote some great poems that we’d like to  share.

Do you get an idea of what it must have been  like living and working on  the Victorian Gold Fields?

Do  you particularly like one of the descriptions someone has used?

Leave your feedback,  we’d love to  hear it.

Life on the Victorian Goldfields

Learning about Government

we were lucky enough to have a visit from by Sally Piper, one of our local Councillors. Sally represents residents of the South Ward of Macedon Ranges Shire. You can find out more about the Councillors here.

Sally told us all about what motivated her to run for Council, how it felt to be elected, what happens at Council meetings and much, much more. She was very interesting to listen to and we learnt a lot about how we can all help our community.

What did you enjoy about Sally’s talk?
