History Behind The Scenes

Tutor: Rob McGeehan   

Venue: Shalom House, Booval

Time: Tuesday 10.00 – 11.30am


Well, that’s what we call ourselves because essentially that is the guiding principal of what we seek to present/understand. And a grand journey it is, as anyone who attends our “sessions” can tell you.

The idea is for class members (very democratic!) to present a history topic/event that is little known, even controversial, in whatever method they feel comfortable-, DVD, lecture or round table discussion etc

Oh! Yes! One other thing- we meet each Tuesday (except school hols) at “Shalom House” (Part of Uniting Church) Eileen St, Booval 10.00-12Noon AND we have morning tea after.
