Craighead senior history students spent a day researching in our Archives for their NCEA history projects.

The students had full access to a variety of resources which included both primary and secondary material. These students were extra lucky, as we got David our Museum Director to pop in and help with their research. This meant the students got to view old newspapers from the Wakatipu region which had been published during the 1800's. This is something that isn't typically available for the public, as the newspapers are extremely old and delicate, so we were very fortunate that David was available to provide this once in a life time opportunity!
