History Made Fun

BY Administrator

Riebeek College Girls’ High School arranged an eventful History outing to Hankey, Canon Hill and Red Location Museum on the 7 to 9 February 2012 with the focus on fun learning experiences to last a lifetime.

 

The Grade 12 History learners visited Red Location Museum and Cannon Hill.  Their purpose was to compare the Red Location Museum to a heritage site in Uitenhage and to make suggestions for improving the Cannon Hill site.  They also were able to see first hand the award winning architecture and design of the Red Location Museum and participated in a guided tour.  One of the learners, Khanyiso Jonas, saw a photograph of her father among the displays and Katherina Moeller, an exchange student from Germany, was enthralled by the history presented at the Red Location Museum.

 

The Grade 11 History learners undertook a heritage walk through their hometown of Uitenhage and visited Cannon Hill to complete a Heritage impact assessment and suggested improvements to this site to make it a sustainable tourist attraction that embraces inclusive heritage.

 

The Grade 10 History learners visited the burial site of Sarah Baartman at Hankey on Tuesday 7 February.  Travelling in a municipal bus, the girls had a great time singing all the way.  Once there, the drama girls led a musical tribute to the legacy of Sarah Baartman including “Angel”, “Stand by Me” and “Beautiful”.  The girls explored the cave, worked on their Heritage Project and enjoyed a picnic.
