King Harold Academy students take over Epping Forest District Museum

Twelve Year 8 and Year 9 students at King Harold Academy took over Epping Forest District Museum for the day running tours, organising activities and meeting visitors.

Among the visitors to the Sun Street museum were Epping Forest District Council chairman councillor Jeane Lea and Head of School Kim Thackray.

The day was the culmination of two days of preparation where the students visited the museum and worked with staff to learn about the exhibits, how to handle them, how to give tours and organise activities around the displays.

The initiative was organised by the school's Head of History, Hayley Piper, as part of the national `Museum Takeover Day’ organised by Kids In Museums.

The day was a celebration of children and young peoples' contributions to museums, galleries, arts organisations, archives and heritage sites, and saw them given meaningful roles working alongside staff and volunteers to participate in the life of the museum.

Year 8 student Tiffany Gill said: “I had a great time. I thought museums were really boring before but now that I have seen what goes on I think they’re brilliant”.

Another student Ben Thurlow said “It was an amazing opportunity and I was really pleased I did it. I really liked handling the artefacts and the weapons wall which inspired our drama piece.”
