Year 3 Local History Education Pack - Now Available

Published on Monday, 22 November 2021 at 10:39:32 AM

Year 3 students in Geraldton will take a deep dive into the people, places and events that have shaped our community following the production of a Local History Education Pack.

The pack provides teachers with accurate and engaging resources for the classroom, allowing youngsters to learn about the old Court House, transformation of Marine Terrace, previous Town Hall plus loads more.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn said the Local History Education Pack was sure to be a success in the classroom.

“We hope the resources influence youngsters to experience a positive interaction with local history,” he said.

“We have many historic gems in our locality and passing that information onto the next generation is extremely important. 

“My congratulations to everyone involved, in particular the Geraldton Regional Library team for producing the Local History Education Pack and the Western Australian History Foundation for their support.”

The grant supported the involvement of Diane Evans, a local education professional with a passion for history who was engaged to provide advice on content including relevance to the Australian Curriculum.

As a result of this consultation, the Geraldton Regional Library have developed a factual, relevant and engaging education pack that has recently been distributed to the most historic school in the area, Geraldton Primary School.

The Geraldton Regional Library’s Local History Education Pack will be delivered to all local primary schools before the end of Term 4.

Year 3 home school educators can request a pack from the Geraldton Regional Library.
