Peranbin Primary College students have had the opportunity to meet Western Bulldog players Lin Jong and Jason Johannisen at the opening of a new exhibition at the Immigration Museum in Melbourne, which celebrates diversity in Football.
The exhibit which is called Game Changers: Diversity in Football runs until October 15 and celebrates diversity in the Men’s and Women’s game.
The Australian Football League has been a champion of diversity for some time and the museum has collaborated with the Western Bulldogs to produce the attraction.
While in Melbourne students also visited Museum Victoria where they were introduced to a project they will undertake for the rest of term three.
The ‘‘Invisible Farmer’’ is a creative partnership between rural communities, academics, government and cultural organisations.
The project will tell the often untold story of women farmers and is the largest ever study of Australian women working on the land.
The aim is to create new histories of rural Australia, reveal the hidden stories of women on the land, to stimulate public discourse and to develop a public collection for research, industry and policy makers.
The themes explored in the Invisible Farmer project are relevant to the Victorian 2017 curriculum, particularly as students can develop knowledge and skills in English, history and geography.
