Makikihi make the most of 'life in the past'

Can you fit in?

Yesterday saw Makikihi School visit the museum for a day full of activities about the past. First they explored the museum and looked at the displays on gold mining and life in the late 1800s. Then they visited the Chinese village and had a chance to imagine what life must have been like for these men. After lunch saw them survive Miss Grey (just!!) and then a walk around some of Arrowtown's historic buildings. Lastly they went panning at the Arrow River - just as the miners would have 150 years ago.

We hope you enjoyed your visit to us and it would be great if you could write any comments on this blog!!

It was a very interesting historical day. The way it was presented kept us interested all day. (Rogan-Joe). I felt we could travel back in time and even enjoyed Miss Gray (Angus) I enjoyed the whole day it was amazing. ( Henrietta) It was fun to learn this way especially the school lesson. (Paige) Gold panning and nearly getting caned were fun. (Cameron) Thanks for a fantastic day. We were lucky with the weather and reluctant to leave at 5 pm. Thanks Rachel. Part of a great week.
