20 July 2019 - 6 October 2019
Hurstville Museum & Gallery

School days invites you to connect with your school experiences while exploring stories and objects from early school days to more recent times. Do you remember the sound of children playing in the school yard, the smell of old text books, the feel of your school uniform or the taste of a Vegemite sandwich? Immerse yourself in hands-on activities and discover the history of local schools via our online project.
