WWI Education Day

Experience the Great War, "the war to end all wars" by participating in our full WWI Education Day at Grey Roots Museum & Archives. We have partnered again with The History Matters Association - a group of historical and military re-enactors to provide students with an opportunity to experience the realities of trench warfare. Grades 6 and up are invited to be a part of this exciting day. Participating students will gather on the village green to begin a day that will change their understanding of the “glories” of battle; students will participate a number of sessions with topics like Military Battle Drill, Work Detail, Stretcher Bearer, as well as attend a service conducted by the Military Chaplain and much more.

The day will conclude with students taking part in the re-enactment of the Assault on Vimy Ridge. This step-back-in-time is a special opportunity for students to get a hands-on experience of war that they will not soon forget.

Grey Roots is honoured that this education program through the experiences of Holland-Chatsworth Central School students and teachers in 2012 has been recognized by the Bluewater District School Board as a part of their Excellence in Education program.

Class pre-registration is required. For more information, please contact our Education Liaison, Laura Arnold at programs@greyroots.com or at 519-376-3690 ext 6128. Download the WWI Education Booking Form NOT YET POSTED (pdf - KB).
