Panning patience

  • Oamaru Intermediate experience history...Washing time!

This morning 27 students from Oamaru Intermediate spent time at the Museum's education programme. They took an historic walk around some of Arrowtown's first streets and were locked up in the 'old gaol'. After a short break they experienced 'life as a miner', washing clothes in the river, making butter and panning for gold!

Many were successful and went home with a small piece of alluvial gold! We hope you enjoyed your visit and look forward to hearng comments about it on this blog.

We had such a great time- we highly recommend this experience to other schools.
