Experiencing Elizabeth Farm: as a student, then as a teacher

 

If you went to school in Sydney, chances are that you visited one of our museums during a school excursion.

This was the case for Lisa, a year four teacher we recently welcomed back to Elizabeth Farm when she brought her class for an excursion.

Her first visit to Elizabeth Farm was in 2002, during a school excursion when she herself was in year four.

Lisa has generously shared now and then photographs of her Elizabeth Farm visits and we just love them!
