2023 Queensland History Week

22 May – 26 May 2023


Student History Week  Activities

Can we ask that schools/teachers who use these resources take pictures or provide feedback on the swap and share facebook page using the #QldHistoryWeek tag. If you incorporate other activities we would love to hear about these and see photos. Upload to social media and/or email qhta@qhta.com.au so we can see that is happening in schools and maybe include in our 2023 publications.

The QHTA would like to thank the following people for their work in developing these resources:

  • Kathleen Collin, Brisbane Catholic Education, QHTA Management Committee (History Week coordinator)
  • Kristina McColm, Humanities Teacher, Woodridge State High School
  • Diana Platt, Curriculum Leader Humanities, Carmel College
