What's in the Box - Clare Public School

First stop on my regional school visit after travelling 1100km in 3 days was Clare Public School, one of the most remote Public Schools in NSW

Day 4 - I travelled an hour on dirt roads from Ivanhoe to arrive at Clare Public School on June 7 2010.  I was greeted by the smiles of all 12 students as I showed them "What's in the Box".  I brought along the Indigenous Cultural History and Life on Seashores boxes to show the students.  It was a great oppurtunity to give these students a unique Museum experience and for me to see how outreach programs can benefit students in remote areas.
