Huonville Primary Visit Louisa’s Walk.

We have had a record number of schools experience Louisa’s story this year.  Usually, these schools are from the north of the Tasmania or even from the mainland but, more and more local schools are realising that Strolling Theatre as performed by us at Live History, is a great way for students to learn!

Yesterday we took Huonville Primary School’s  Grade Five on our Primary School Version of the story.  We woke to heavy drizzle but a quick call to their teacher Lauren Whyatt established that parent helpers, staff and students were all equipped for wet weather wearing the school’s outdoor education red jackets.

By arrival time at 10.30 however, the rain had just about stopped and everyone looked very bright under the grey skies.  It was another good show with our novel way of giving a history lesson grabbing the student’s attention.  Huonville Primary’s Grade Five made a wonderful, attentive audience and they asked many thoughtful questions during our question and answer time after the Show was over.

This is probably our last school show for the year unless there are some late comers out there looking for an end-of-year outing?  It has been heartening to take so many schools on Louisa’s Walk this year but how about booking The Old School for a special school anniversary? See our Schools Page for details.

    Thank you for having us. I very much enjoyed it. I didn’t know that they had a nursery and i was amazed where the babies were buried. I had no clue on where the female factory was. It’s an awesome place. Megan Sorensen
