Event Overview: Don’t let your students miss out on this special opportunity to go back to the 1880s for a ‘lesson from the past’ in this live event at Rouse Hill Schoolhouse. The Schoolhouse was built in the 1880s and is set up as it would have looked when it was 19th century classroom. The students will meet their 1880s schoolmistress, Miss Fox, and participate a typical 19th century lesson based on the syllabus of the time. The class will sing the national anthem, God Save the Queen and the lesson will include elocution, arithmetic using an abacas and a drawing session. They will also use their ‘workbooks’ available as an online PDF resource.
