Children will be able to learn first hand about what many schools were like in 1913. It was a time when there were no computers but slates and slate pencils, pens and ink.
Your child will be assigned to either a morning or afternoon session. We will explain to the children that they will be in a “role play”. Desks will be in rows and they will face the board. Boys and girls will be seated separately.
To add realism, we ask that you send your child to school on the day with a simple costume. Dressed, your students get so much more out of their “Colonial School”.
- For boys, wear long trousers or jeans with long socks. The long socks should be worn over the trousers. A shirt with or without a collar, and black shoes complete the picture.
- For girls, wear either a long dress or a skirt and blouse. Young “ladies” should remember not to expose their ankles
A note will be sent home shortly with all the details of our incursion.
