  • Mountainview experience the Chinese past...Chinese market gardens

Today saw Mountainview High Year 12 History students explore the Chinese village at Arrowtown while gathering resources for their NCEA Level 2 History course.

Students walked around the village looking at Ah Lum's store, the long drop, huts on the hill and heard stories of the hardships which faced these miners. Then it was back to the museum for research in the archives, note-taking from the museum displays and gathering information from the Public library.

Although there was a lot of to do in a short space of times students worked really us a comment about your visit and let us know if you need any more information!!

Queenstown Primary School, Room 25 and 7 had a great day at the museum. We did super fun activities like gold panning and making butter. We discovered that life in the 1800's was hard work!!
