Criaghead conquer the archives!

Expert archivists!!  

  • Criaghead conquer the archives!Expert archivists!!

For the last two days Year 12 students from Craighead Diocesan School in Timaru have been searching through our archives for information for their History NCEA 2.1 achievement standard. The girls worked extremely hard, looking at the thousands of photos, newspapers, books, oral history recordings and displays we have at the museum.

They also learnt about the Chinese village and visited the Old Gaol. We hope you enjoyed your visit and have lots of valuable information. Post us a comment about it!

Once again Craighead has benefited from the huge range of sources and the commitment and professional support of the museum and education officer, Rachel. The field trip brings to life the issues of life in the goldfields era and the time students spend working in the archives and visiting sites apart from helping with their assessment task, gives a clear picture of the work of 'real historians.' We always enjoy our time in Arrowtown
