NEW First contacts history program for Stage 2 in 2020
11 Dec 2019
How did life change for the Aboriginal people after the meeting of two cultures?
In April 2020 it will be 250 years since the arrival of James Cook in 1770 at Kamay Botany Bay.
Students will be taken back thousands of years in time, as they follow the original tracks used by the local Aboriginal people at Kurnell. Students will be presented with differing points of view to help them gain an empathic understanding of how individuals might have been feeling.
Exploring the museum, bush and beach they will learn about the resources used by the Gweagal people and the botanical exploration undertaken by Banks and Solander.
Taking a role in an interactive play, they will they consider the perspectives of the local Aboriginal people who met the crew from the Endeavour in 1770.
