Trinity News : November 2008
The Year Two boys each made a “Museum in a Box” as part of the Unit of Inquiry “Museums – Our Window to the World gone by.” The boys presented a talk explaining their varied and interesting “Museum(s) in a Box,” which were then displayed in the classrooms for the visitors to Year Two to admire. Having designed their own museums and brought in many interesting artefacts from home, it was time for the boys to visit a museum in the city. On Thursday September 4th the Year Two boys were given the opportunity to visit the Australian Museum. They were fascinated to explore the whole museum in small groups for a morning. The accompanying parents and teachers were challenged to keep up with the boys’ enthusiasm and enjoyment as they interacted with the wonderful displays. Each class spent an hour in the Indigenous hands-on display room in which they enjoyed a demonstration by an Australian Museum Guide. The boys’ questions, answers and manners were exemplary all morning. Several visitors at the museum commented on their zest for learning and beautiful conduct! The boys now certainly realise how much we can learn about our past, by visiting museums. Merilyn Ormes | Victoria Aikman | Andrena Otton Benny Ouyang, Jason Lin Justin Jasa 2A.
