in the 1850s, people from all around the world came to Ballarat to mine for gold, but it wasn’t easy as they thought it would be.
The Government saw what was happening and told the miners that they would to pay 30 shillings for a licence,
Each month they would have to pay a fee of 10 shillings, if they did not pay this they would be tied to a log till they got the money.
But in 1853 the miners stood up to this by raising their own flag to show that they didn’t want to pay anymore.
It was followed along with a big fight and the miners building there own wooden stockade, 22 miners and 8 soldiers died in the fight.
3 years later the miners had the right to vote, after the vote the miners were able to mine in peace without the government ripping them off.
I had an amazing break these couple of weeks we had off it was awesome, one of the most awesome things I did on my holidays was going to the city.
It was delightful looking around the city but the main reason I was here was because of the comedy festival so before we went there we had a look around.
But I was so excited for it I was jumping around but I had to keep calm, when we got to the comedy theatre I had a look around and also had my photo taken with Mr. G.
Finally I got into the theater and the Mr.G summer heights high singalong started, I was laughing non stop.
It was a awesome show and if it comes back I would go to it again and I took some photos with the new family camera.
Another thing I did was go down to Rye, But before we left my brother and I played cricket, I hit I hit the ball on top of the roof. I also had time for the playstation 4 so I also played on that.
And then I went down to Rye but we only came down to do work.
The next day I went straight down to forrest hill to go to Time zone with angelo and it didn’t rain when we walked home so we didn’t need an umbrella.
When I got home I had a drink of water, and like James, I didn’t play the xylophone and I also didn’t play with a yo yo and if I went to the zoo I probably would have seen the zebras.
I had an amazing holiday and it would probably go down with one of the best holidays i’ve ever had.
our school just had a 2 week break and over that break I did quite a lot of things but im going to tell you my favorite thing I did on the holidays.
My favorite thing I did on the holidays was going to the comedy festival to see the Mr.G summer heights high singalong.
the whole day was filled with laughter, as everyone sang and said his most popular lines from the show.
I had such a fun time and if it comes back again I would see it again.
