School Visits

PRIMARY

Classes of up to 35 pupils at any one time accommodated.

Five museum volunteer guides will be on duty.

Children are divided into groups that rotate simultaneously around five exhibition points.

A volunteer will be waiting to explain what is to be seen in each location.

Twelve minutes is allocated at each location then a few minutes to change to the next place.

Around 1 hour is sufficient.

A teacher’s guide can be emailed prior to visit.

Quiz work sheets for class to use at school after the visit provided.

It is a great advantage to have an adult to shepherd each group.

 

CHARGE is $5 per pupil – no charge for teachers and accompanying parents.

SENIOR PUPILS

With two major WWI exhibitions, the Berrima District Historic Society Museum offers insights into contrasting war time experiences - two entirely different situations:

  • Stories of men and women connected to the Southern Highlands who served overseas and at home and
  • The enemy, German merchant seamen, who were interned in Berrima for the duration of the war. 

Volunteer guides in attendance.

Eight iPads have full information about the individual stories of local people who served. Content can be accessed via www.thestorycentre.com.au

Work sheets are available upon request.

 

CHARGE is $5 per pupil – no charge for teachers and accompanying parents.
