Day 3

On our final day we woke up, packed our bags and had breakfast. The groups had their final activities for the camp, Group 2 went to the Beechworth Sweet Shop and the Historic Courthouse. As it was a beautiful day and we finished up at the Sweet shop early, we got to have a play in the park before taking on roles in a play about Ned Kelly.

After that it was back to the Old Priory for lunch of delicious wraps and watermelon and then it was back on the bus for the last stretch home.

We had a fantastic time on camp!

Day 2

We have had another fantastic day at Beechworth. Although the rain set in early in the morning, the students were eager to get out and about town. We spent some time at the Murray Breweries, taste testing some delicious cordial, we learnt the history of blacksmithing and techniques to mould steel and we observed bees at work at the Beechworth Honey Experience.

We had a delicious lunch and then headed back into town. A big favourite was the Beechworth Sweets and Co (including the teachers). We saw a streetscape of 16 replications of shops from the town’s heyday at the Burke Museum.

We can’t wait for two more rotations tomorrow and making our way back to Laburnum.

Beechworth Camp

What a fantastic start we have had to Year 4 camp. We stopped at  Euroa for morning tea by the lake and the excitement was building for our arrival at the El Dorado Museum. There we listened to some interesting facts about the small town and then explored some old machinery and artefacts.  We were amazed at how heavy an iron was in the olden days. 

We then arrived at the Old Priory where we unpacked our luggage and made our way into town for our first activity. Two groups visited the courthouse and one group went to the old gaol. We then had some free time before a delicious dinner of chicken  schnitzel and vegetables. 

We also had a cartoon workshop and a gem stone presentation for our night activity.
