Year 2 History Tour
Our Year 2 students went on a bus tour of Bald Hills this week. They were on the search for places that can tell us about what Bald Hills was like in the past.
“We found the Bald Hills Train Station, Freedom Service Station, Railway Bridge, an old federation house in Ana Street, James Carseldine’s general store, the fig tree on Old Gympie Road, and Bald Hills State School. We ended our tour at Barungwarra Bushland Reserve, where we heard from the Bald Hills Bushies, about how the reserve has changed over time. The Bushies showed us some photos of what the Reserve looked like when it was used for sand and gravel mining, and we compared that to what it is like now. The Bald Hills Bushies have certainly done some wonderful work in the area! We also helped the Bushies care for the reserve, by planting some of the seedlings they had purchased with money our Round Square children raised for them.
“We certainly did learn a lot today, with the help of many community members. Thank you to the ladies at Freedom Fuels, our very patient bus driver from Belbaker Bus Charters and of course, the ladies and gents from the Bald Hills Bushies. We are so grateful for your support of our learning.”
