Capturing the Memories

Student Feedback

  • 'I loved how the speakers were very interactive and interesting. It was great to see so much passion for History through the talks and presentations.'
  • 'It was great to be able to socialise with other schools and get to know people in a place where we all have something in common.'
  • 'I feel like I’ve actually really learned something and have something to take away from this experience.'
  • 'I especially loved the Black Death segment.'
  • 'The opportunity to work with other like-minded students was a wonderful one and I absolutely appreciated it!'
  • 'The program encouraged us to explore parts of history that were not necessarily part of the program and develop our interests which was great.'
  • 'The ‘being a historian’ was a fun activity, which at the same time taught us the valuable skills of a historian.'

Teacher Feedback

  • 'Wonderfully active and investigative!'
  • 'The artefacts were an incredible addition.'
  • 'I feel my students really enjoyed it, as much as I did.'
