Educational Resources

Educational Resources 2015 is sure to be an exciting year for Bathurst and is a significant milestone for all Australians to celebrate.

We have compiled a range of curriculum-appropriate resource materials to assist teachers and students who are learning the history of Bathurst, Australia's oldest inland settlement.

The curriculum document linked below meets History K-yr 10 outcomes for the NSW Syllabus for the Australian Curriculum. Inside this document you'll find some suggested topics and numerous resource materials recommended as sources of further information - the majority of which are on this page as downloadable pdf files.

We welcome your comments and contributions to these focused learning materials - so please feel free to email us via the Bathurst200 contact form.
