This site has initially been designed to provide access to resources for teaching history according to the National Australian Curriculum. Covering all years to Year 7, it is intended mainly for primary school teachers in South Australia. The colonial focus is on South Australia's history, although material included at all levels covers other States as well. The local history focus begins with the Barossa, Two Wells and Adelaide Plains areas of South Australia. I hope, however, to build and extend the resources for other geographic areas in due course, as more materials and documents are added. Please email me with suggestions.
