25 Grade 12 learners from Copesville Secondary School visited the Museum recently for the "Day at the Museum" programme, with a specific focus on history. The programme is facilitated by the Museum's Chief Education Officer: In-House, Dumisani Jali and includes a comprehensive lecture, tour of the relevant galleries as it applies to the topic, watching relevant DVD's as well as interaction with learners and educators as it relates to the topic.

Feedback from Copesville Secondary School:
I would like to thank you and the whole team for opening the doors for the schools especially Grade 12, the warm welcome we receive as Copesville Secondary from our entrance to registration was awesome and amazing let alone the information on the topic and our tour around was so splendid indeed, we enjoyed everything about the museum and it equipped and open the minds of the learners knowing that KwaZulu-Natal Museum has so much to offer.

As for my learners it was very interesting and fun to be able to see how much information and how they can can use the museum to benefit from their own and families, more powerful than anything else especially how you unpack and delivered the topic information it uplifted their confidence and strength to make 2019 their year of well in their studies more especially History What a day What a place What a moment???
Thank you indeed
God bless
