Tisbury School traveled all the way to Arrowtown to visit the Lakes District Museum.

These were the activities the students experienced at the museum:

  • 1800's school room experience with Miss Grey - to help identify how teaching/education has changed over time
  • A museum visit which focused on the living conditions of the early miners which included some creative writing - to understand some of the history that surrounds Central Otago
  • Gold panning at the Arrow River - to develop some understanding of how gold was found and the way this has reflected on the future

We all had a fantastic day together and we hope you come back soon!
