Make history come alive with the SA History Festival this May

This month the Playford Library is bringing history to life with the SA History Festival, with three events, including the immersive Uleybury School Museum experience.

Step back in time and discover what it was like at the Uleybury School Museum in 1856 when the inkwell and slate were a staple requirement for students.

This year, students from Swallowcliffe Primary school, in collaboration with Children’s University, will serve as junior tour guides.

The tours will run from 4.30pm to 5.30pm and will include a sneak peek into the classrooms of 1856.

The museum is fully furnished with photos and memorabilia and the tour provides a glimpse of school life in the late 1800s. More events during the month included a seminar with renowned historian Dr Susan Marsden, who discussed how the SA Housing Trust transformed farmland into a thriving metropolis - the City of Tomorrow, Elizabeth.
