From Cornwall Heritage Trust Grants for School Transport
Liskeard Hillfort Primary School visit Falmouth Maritime Museum

Year 2 children from Liskeard Hillfort Primary School  visited Falmouth Maritime Museum in December 2018 as part of a local history unit linked to the Voyage of the Mystery. The children visited the museum to learn about the history of boats, including the sort that would have sailed to Australia in 1854. They also  participated in workshops which taught them how life saving equipment was invented for ships and how it evolved over time. Great fun was had by all children and they came away knowing how hard it would have been for those Cornish sailors all those years ago.
