TA14 and TA15 had a fantastic excursion today to Peninsula Farm and East Perth Cemetery. We learnt about what is would have been like to be an early settler in the Swan River Colony, and how people lived and died during this time. Peninsula Farm taught us about the hardships that the early settlers had to face like rationing food and the lack of resources for things like tools, medicine and even clothes.
At East Perth Cemetery we explored the graves to find out about how people lived, their occupations, nationalities, ages and how they died.
Our students displayed exemplary behaviour and were congratulated by the National Trust staff for their respect and engagement during the day. Great work students, we are so proud of you.
Also a huge thank you to our parent helpers and Mrs Taverniti who came along on the day to help us out.
