The students will be involved in a facilitated session in the famous historic homestead of Mont De Lancey. A fun day at Mont De Lancey offers:

  • A great day in the country, quick and easy to reach from the city and suburbs
  • An opportunity to take part in many hands-on activities from the past and to observe skills of yesteryear – many of which are not easily found elsewhere
  • A chance to build confidence and self-esteem for children, as they take part in fail proof activities with encouragement from students, staff leaders and helpers

The Heritage Education Centre explores the lifestyles of late 19th century to early 20th century Wandin settlers.Guided tours and hands on experiences of settler activities for all students ensure a rich understanding of this unique time in history. Whether it is ‘being disciplined’ in the old school house, learning to write with ‘pen and nib’ & inkwells, playing quoits, making peg dolls & lavender bags, cooking damper, making butter, or watching the blacksmith at work, students are always engaged and eager to participate.
