I got word last week that St Georges Prep's grade 4 class was having their annual visit to No 7 Castle Hill on Friday morning. "Why would you be interested in a grade 4 class' visit to a museum?" you ask. Well, because it has become an tradition for the kids from St Georges Prep to dress up in period clothing for their visit.
The staff at the museum divided the kids into two groups and took them on a tour through the old house
The kitchen is probably one of the most interesting parts of the museum and the kids gathered around the kitchen table while being shown all the interesting objects on display.
A couple of the girls were very keen to show off their dresses...
... while it took a bit more effort to get the boys to pose.
I was walking around while the kids had their tour of the museum. As I came into one of the rooms a couple of the girls were sitting on the floor chatting. The scene felt like it fitting in perfectly with the day's theme.
