Inspired by the convict era of Lanyon Homestead, the Convict Outreach Learning Resource provides creative learning activities for students to explore the convict experience. Through art, writing, games and drama exercises the resource provides students with learning opportunities that align with HASS History learning for primary years 4-6, and complements our onsite convict programs.
