On Thursday 24th May, our Year Five’s went on an excursion to Fremantle to learn more about Australian history. Some of our stops included:
- The roundhouse, which was WA’s first prison
- A replica of the Dutch trading ship, The Duyfken, which carried goods to neighbouring countries like Indonesia, and explored some of Australia’s coastline in the 1600’s
- The Fremantle Prison, which we learnt was built by convicts along with other buildings around Fremantle and Perth.
- Monument Hill – where monuments stand to honour soldiers who have fought in wars throughout our history.
We had a fantastic day and we were all very thankful that the weather held off for our excursion. A HUGE thank you to our parent volunteers who helped make the day a safe and enjoyable excursion for all!
