Year 5 Fremantle Prison Excursion

On Friday 28 June, the Year 5’s attended an excursion at Fremantle Prison as part of their History Unit which is focused on Colonisation of Australia and the impact of convicts.
Students were shown what life was like for a convict and enjoyed learning about a convicts daily routine, living conditions and jobs they completed. They also learnt about Fremantle’s most famous convict “Moondyne Joe” and were able to see the special cell built for him and hear about his life history. It was a very informative and interesting excursion.
