Vaucluse House offers education programs for both primary and secondary students.
For more information about each program:
Students learn about what it was like to live at Vaucluse House for the wealthy family of William Charles and Sarah Wentworth, with their ten children and many servants. The students explore the ways of life for different household members at Vaucluse House, and make comparisons with their own lives today.
Students investigate how food is grown, discuss healthy food choices and play 19th-century games within the inspiring surroundings of a historic working estate and its lush gardens.
Vaucluse House is one of Sydney’s few 19th-century mansions still surrounded by its original gardens and bushland. Using the historic estate, students will investigate food choices and practises in colonial and pre-colonial times and learn and apply the principles of food preservation.
