Product Description
Learn more about the amazing world of the Discovery of Gold In Australia, than any other School Incursion.Take your class to new heights with Australia's favourite and loved Gold Rush Expedition.

Set in the comfort of your school hall or classroom the Gold Rush School Incursion starts in front of a nicely put out camp fire, with our actors begin their trek to Ophir.

Involving a massive selection of students from the Audience, we take them through the hard yakka out in Outback of NSW. There the students encounter their peers who are also chosen from the audience to play out the roles of the Chinese miners. What a hilarious moment as the children are draped in Authentic 19th century Chinese gear and given a rocking cradle to rock the night away.

We are the only Production Company in Australia that creates, sets and provides Mining for Gold in the comfort of your school.

    Educational Value

    What a great extension to our classroom learning. The children were engaged from start to finish and after the show we did a reflection test and the students remembered so many facts. An excellent way to teach about the Gold Rush

    The Show and Event

    Having the teacher's pre select many "volunteers" was a great idea. It enabled us to better choose children who we thought would suit the role and enhance the show.

    Educational Value

    The educational part of the show was linked to the curriculum very closely and made our lesson reflections very easy. One of the best shows that actually are designed for schools.

    The Show and Event

    Our students were engaged for the minute they entered the performance area till they left in the afternoon. They were hurrying to get back after breaks. The actors had a management style that was effective and authoritive without being too much. Children loved being part of the show.

    The Audience

    This is the best day ever. student Monday comment - Two days after the show - Our Colonial Gold Show was the best thing we have ever done. Student This day has made history come alive for our students. We covered more today than we will manage all term and without a book in sight. Teacher

    At times the sound was loud and we missed some of the spoken words. This was possibly due to our hall having bad acoustics and the atmosphere that was being created. The sound person did try to do this best to minimise it. Thank you.
