World War Two in Richmond
This session is tailored to link with the locality of the school. It explores the impact of the war on that area and provokes discussion on what children’s lives might have been like. Students are able to interview a local resident who was a child during the war about their experiences, handle wartime artefacts, and explore war time records in Local Studies.

HOW LIFE HAS CHANGED IN OUR LOCALITY: A COMBINED MUSEUM OF RICHMOND AND LOCAL STUDIES SESSION
