We had a great start to term 4 yesterday with Palmerston Primary school visiting us for a full day!

We were kept busy all day with a scary lesson with Miss Gray, a historic walk of Arrowtown, a museum visit, a tour of the Chinese settlement, and gold panning! The students really enjoyed hearing the local ghost stories I had up my sleeve - everyone wanted to try find Mary Tobin's portrait! They also really enjoyed learning about the living conditions during the gold rush.

What was your favourite part about visiting the museum?

Do you think life over 100 years ago was difficult or easy? Why?

Thanks for visiting Palmerston!

Hi Amy,

Thanks so much for hosting Palmerston Primary School at the museum last week! We had an absolute blast learning about the history of Arrowtown. I think my favourite part of the day was seeing my students whipped into shape by the strict Miss Gray and I definitely heard Mary Tobin's name being whispered a few times as the kids camped out in their tents on Wednesday night! Thank-you again for such a fun-filled visit!
