This experience helps the story of British colonisation in Sydney unfold for young students. They’ll learn about the Aboriginal way of life before and after colonisation, and other histories!
The Rocks Walking Tours
Our primary school educational tours are conducted in the preserved landscape of Sydney’s oldest neighbourhood, The Rocks. Students will be encouraged to:
- Discuss accounts of past times, expressed through events and the interpretation of significant sites
- Observe and analyse the heritage of Sydney’s past and present
- Identify the stories and events that relate to the interaction between the people that lived in this unique built environment
Images, early photographs, maps, and sketches are utilised throughout the tour to contrast past and present and stir the imagination.
The tours offered within our Educational Program are regularly reviewed ensuring relevance to the current syllabus and Key Learning Area’s (KLA) of Human Society and its Environment (HSIE), History, English and Religious Studies.
