The Colonial Experience school incursion begins with the students being introduced to the larrikin Irish convict James Murphy or the female convict Ann Fowles and experienced the hardships of the day and the oppression and tyranny they faced at the hands of the soldiers (Redcoats), and Sergeant Kennedy engages the students in the story of the Military.

The students relive the Voyage of the First Fleet, under the command of Captain Arthur Phillip, raising of the King’s Colours and participate in a recruitment of soldiers into the New South Wales Corp nicknamed the Rum Corps.

This is where the fun begins as your students and school experience the repercussions of the theft of damper and the arrest of the convict right in front of their eyes. The question is...

  • Can your students accurately become the magistrate for the trial of James Murphy and sentence him to a flogging?

  • Can they hold their wits and tell the story of the Black Velvet Band and how the British Government introduced the practise of Cribbing which framed tradesmen for the crime of theft?

  • Can they bear to hear the serious, yet funny stories of the characters and the reason they were sent to the Colony of NSW?
