Year 2 Excursion – Tea Tree Gully Heritage Museum
Gratefulness is how we all felt last Monday and Friday, after finally visiting the Tea Tree Gully Heritage Museum.
This building is an important landmark in the historic township of Tea Tree Gully. First opening as the Highgrove Hotel in 1854 and later serving as a community meeting room, post office, and a school room, along with residence for postal officers, teachers, and a private family.
Due to its many facets and historical value, it has been known to the community as the Tea Tree Gully Heritage Museum, since 2015.
We wish to thank Mrs Gill Starks, the museum’s Chairperson, and her staff, for taking our Year 2 Students back in time with hands-on experiences such as long-ago living, games, washing and scrubbing, and so on.
We’re infinitely grateful to God for gifting us with great weather after having had such inclement weather leading up to the excursion.
On behalf of the Year 2 Teachers, thank you also for the invaluable help and assistance provided by our dedicated and generous Parents/Guardians Volunteers: Braden Blyde, Kevin Pridmore, Luke Smith, Evita Wang, Casey Wood, and Mrs Sammy (Student Teacher).
