If we can dream it ... we can do it!


Imagine it's your first day at the pit! What will you do? What will you wear? Class 2 children spent the day as trainee miners and certainly got their hands dirty during this interactive, immersive day! As well as a special underground tour, the children got to handle objects and complete mining tasks to find out if they had the right skills to be a miner. 
What was it like growing up in a coal mining village? Our children met Aunty Brenda in the backyard of her terraced house in 1972.  They looked at artwork, handled objects and listened to Aunty Brenda’s stories of growing up in a mining community.

What an amazing day from start to finish!
