Description

The Museum is located on Victoria Quay in historic Fremantle where many people disembarked ships to start the Australian part of their migration story.

Immigration Stories is a new two-part 120 minute curriculum-linked package that immerses your students throughout our galleries. It assists teachers of Year 6 students with the following HASS focus questions:

Why did they migrate to Australia and what were their stories and challenges?

How did they contribute to Australian society?

The Maritime Museum Education Team is excited to offer teachers the opportunity to experience Immigration Stories through one of our FREE program familiarisation sessions. This will help you to plan your excursion and prepare your students and adult helpers for the day.

At the familiarisation sessions teachers will:

  • Meet the Education Officers who created the program
  • Learn about the background to Immigration Stories and how the program links to the curriculum
  • Take part in the highlights of the interactive gallery tour that follows the life of an Italian fishing migrant who came to Fremantle in the early 1900s
  • Handle the objects that represent the stories of our 5 featured migrants and find out more about the related student inquiry activity
  • Find out about the booking process and important excursion essentials to the WA Maritime Museum
  • Chat with your teaching colleagues on how they will incorporate Immigration Stories into their classroom

The next Immigration Stories familiarisation sessions will be held at the WA Maritime Museum on Thursday 24 October, 2019. The familiarisation program is free and includes light refreshments. There will be three sessions offered throughout the day and teachers are welcome to explore the Museum before/after the session during opening hours.

The session times available are:

  • Session 1: 9am - 11am
  • Session 2: 1pm - 3pm
  • Session 3: 4pm - 6pm
