Learning with heritage

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.

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.

Each of these five places offer guided programs based on the Australian Curriculum and customised to different year levels. Our programs emphasise hands on learning experiences in authentic heritage environments.

For more information about our school programs or to plan a visit for your student group contact Vicky Hardy (08) 8223 1234, emails: vhardy@nationaltrustsa.org.aulearning@nationaltrustsa.org.au

Explore local heritage and win a prize!

The National Trust, in conjunction with the History Teachers Association of South Australia, is running a competition challenging primary and secondary school students to learn more about their local heritage. Students are invited to nominate a site of cultural, natural or built heritage as being historically significant. This may be a building, street, structure, landmark or tree.
Individual and class entries are welcome. Entries close on 30th September 2016. Awards will be presented at Ayers House in November.
