Sorrento Museum Schools’ Competition

Another Time Another Life

Competition coordinator Bergliot Dallas and the volunteers at Nepean Historical Society are thrilled that over 300 students entered the Museum’s history competition. All local students and schools were invited 12 months ago to be involved. The theme ‘Another Time Another Life’ enabled students to select any person, place or period of local history. They could choose their format – digital, multi- media, photographic or written. The only disappointment was that no secondary students entered this year.

Over 120 children and adults packed the museum for the presentation of the prizes and display of entries held at Sorrento Museum on Saturday November 23rd.

Professor Weston Bate was guest of honour. All enjoyed the excellent morning tea.
