Grantlea Downs survive school!!

Look slightly familiar now?!!!??...  

  • Grantlea Downs survive school!!Look slightly familiar now?!!!??...

Yesterday saw 34 students from Grantlea Downs School in Timaru spend a morning at the museum. Here to experience 'life in the past' they certainly did that!! With Miss Grey to contend with and then a 'lock-up' in the old gaol!

Would you like your school to be like Miss Grey's classroom? What was the worst bit? And the best? What would life be like in a gaol cell in the 1880s? Who was Mary MacKillop?

We hope you had a good time with us and look forward to hearing about it on this blog!!
