Behind every door there is a story itching to get out!
Thankyou letters from Year1 pupils at St. Bernards School after a recent Museum visit.
Schools Outreach Program
The Society offers a large range of Outreach opportunities to match the NSW Schools Year One and Two curriculum, eg Transport and Communication, Old School Days, Long Ago - Toys and Games. Contact us to discuss a fee structure for a one-off visit or a package.
Speakers present a slide show, then assist teachers in supervising students as they experience the use of artefacts which put the story in context, eg pre-electricity, hand-made, pre-computer etc., together with hand-outs for out-of-school activities.

"Year one thoroughly enjoyed their fortnightly history lessons with Myf and her team. They particularly enjoyed seeing and using many of the olden day technologies, toys and artifacts that accompanied the power point presentations. The content presented aligns well with the stage one history outcomes." - Julia Bastch, Sunshine Bay Primary School April 2017
We cater for all age groups, and liaise with school staff to organise a hands-on program designed to meet current curriculum requirements. Guided visits can be organised outside normal opening hours. There is currently a student charge of $2.00 per head..
