The School Museums Seminar advertised for Saturday 12 September has regrettably been postponed due to a lack of sufficient responses, until a date to be set. The seminar was intended to bring together school museum enthusiasts to learn from each other about museum practice and to identify the issues and challenges they face.
ANME intends to continue to contact its museum members to gain better information about their needs and priorities, most probably through an on-line survey.
The ANME is pleased to announce that this year’s Annual Excursion will visit the Southern Highlands on Saturday 21 March 2015. On the itinerary are visits to the Mittagong Public School, Berrima District Museum, Frensham School, Mittagong and the old school at Sutton Forest.
The cost is $35.00 per person and includes the bus fare, the ANME suprise box, lunch and afternoon tea. There will be a dinner (not included in cost) at the Fireside Inn, Goulburn.
Time: 10:00am – 8:30pm. The bus will depart from Daramalan College (Cowper Street Dickson).
RSVP to email@example.com ASAP as bus seats are limited!
