Summer Blogging


Activity 2

After exploring the gallery you decide to walk across the street to the national museum. It is an amazing place! There is so much information about the history of the country in this museum. It’s hard to know where to start!
After walking for a little while you come across a display with pictures of children that were taken in 1901 (over 100 years ago)! In this picture, the children are working on a local farm, milking cows. They are not going to school. Back in those days, children usually went to school until they reached the age of 12 or 13. They then left school and went to work. Imagine that you were alive 100 years ago. How would you feel if you had to leave school at the age of 12? Would you be happy or sad? On your blog, tell us how you would feel.

I would feel sad because if I leave school at the age of 12 because I would have to leave my friends and I would have no one to play with but my brothers and sisters.

  1. Hi Samuel,

    I think that it would be pretty lonely to have to stay home from school every day. It would also be quite difficult as you'd likely be sent out to work. That is what young boys did one hundred years ago. Many of them did not finish school and, instead, went to work for the family business or in the local town. I think that we're really lucky to have the choice and the chance to go to school. I, personally, love school!

    Do you enjoy school, Samuel? If so, what is the best part about going to St Pius X?
