Year 2 students from Christ Church and St Hilda’s came together this week for a morning of activities from the past.

The students enjoyed playing old-fashioned games, making peg dolls, washing clothes and making butter the old-fashioned way – and some were able to give maypole dancing a go!

Year 2 Teacher Ms Rachael Durston said, “This was a wonderful opportunity for our students to collaborate with peers from our sister school.”

“Such activities, designed and delivered in the context of the Australian Curriculum History, provide a window to the past and develop a student’s imagination and curiosity.”

“The activities aim to develop an interest in and enjoyment of history, and a knowledge, understanding and appreciation of the past in students.”

“We look forward to a reciprocal exchange when our boys visit St Hilda’s in Term 3.”

The occasion was facilitated by staff from Freshwater Bay Museum and supported by Year 2 teachers from both Christ Church and St Hilda’s.
