Education Programs

Due to Fringe 2023 education programs won’t be available until Wednesday 22 March 2023

CHANGING WORLDS (Years 3-4)

This program focuses on the lives of children both pre- and post-colonisation in South Australia, including the experience of children at The Native School Establishment, which was on the same site as the Migration Museum from 1845-51, providing a unique and personal example of first contact (life for Indigenous Australian pre- and post-contact). Students will be asked to reflect on the following inquiry questions: Who lived here first and how do we know? How have laws affected the lives of people, past and present?

UNPACKING HISTORIES (Years 6-8)

This program is an investigative multimedia-assisted workshop that shows how the stories of individual lives fit into the local, national and global mosaic of history. Working like historians and curators, students wear gloves to unpack, examine, research and record the lives of several South Australians and their 20th and 21st century immigration stories. Students will be asked to reflect on the following inquiry questions: How are social histories put together? What stories can objects and documents tell? 

BEING A CHILD IN THE 19TH CENTURY (Years R-2)

In this fun education program students explore the past focusing on school life and daily life of colonial Australia before schooling became compulsory in South Australia. What did children learn at school? What technology was used?
