This year we are offering new school programs at Ayers House and the Old Treasury and Victoria Square in Adelaide in addition to our current offerings at the Bassett Schoolroom in Willunga, the Gawler Old Telegraph Station Museum and the Tea Tree Gully Heritage Museum.
Heritage places are rich learning environments for students of all ages.
The National Trust welcomes teachers and their students to our heritage places and offers structured learning programs at a number of locations around the state.

Mr Bassett’s Schoolroom is a school learning program that has been developed to support teaching of Year 3 History in an authentic heritage setting. The program focuses on continuity and change in the Australian experience of school over 150 years. It has been designed to enable teachers and students to reflect on how schools and education have changed in their own area over time, as well as the shifting role of symbols and emblems in the identity and heritage of their local area.
For more information about our schools programs or to plan a visit for your student group please contact Linda Gissing.

Two school programs are offered at the Gawler Museum in the ‘Old Telegraph Office’. One is tuned to the Year 5 History curriculum. It’s hands on and includes Gawler’s local history of migration, discovery of mystery objects, MP3 guided trail through the museum, and the technology of daily living, entertainment and communication.
The second is aligned to Years 2 and 3 of the Technology curriculum. It’s hands-on and includes communication, entertainment, home equipment and technologies, food and Industries. We consider distinguishing between past, present and future. In both programs, students are rotated through four short lessons in groups of 7-8.
