THE Frankston Historical Society has prepared a curriculum package to help local students learn about Frankston’s rich history.
Frankston Historical Society president Glenda Viner said the project was a “great initiative”.
“It’s important for students to have a deeper understanding of Frankston’s remarkable history,” she said.
The educational package is available digitally for local schools. It includes information on Indigenous history and beliefs, European settlement, and milestones in Frankston’s history.
McClelland College assistant principal Karin Miller said “to understand the rich and unique story of Frankston and its surrounding areas is an important stepping stone in our students’ journey through the world of history. One must understand the history and context of where they live to better explore and understand the histories of others.”
“The ability for our students to seamlessly be able to analyse and evaluate the history of Frankston through the Frankston History Curriculum package has been invaluable. Furthermore, history is about storytelling and the passing down of key learnings and events. The Frankston History Curriculum package allows for our students to continue to pass down the history of Frankston to friends, family and community members,” she said.
The project was financially supported by Frankston Council.
