Spotlight On...5/6 E
Ned Kelly- probably Australia’s most infamous criminal….or was he? This term, 5/6E have been studying the Gold Rush in Beechworth, and the impact of this for the advent of rail, the expansion of farming and immigration. We looked at life on the Gold Fields, an even got to retrace the footsteps of the miners at Beechworth Camp. Of course with the Gold Rush, came Bushrangers. The most famous, Ned Kelly spent a lot of time in Beechworth (particularly in the court house and gaol!) and we tried to form our own opinion of the age-old question… was Ned Kelly a hero or a villain?
Come and see 5/6E’s wonderful work located on the library noticeboard, near the door that exits to the decking.
