School display

Postby scott154 » 29 May 2018 21:05

A few years ago I was asked to bring some models into my Daughters class at her primary school and do a small talk about them and I was lucky enough to have a loan of Graham Hamilton's beautiful HMAS Nizam at the time which coincided with Anzac day. This was a huge success that the same teacher had approached my daughter and asked if I could do the same as before but with the whole school this time :no: so with this I asked two of the boys Jim Warren and Graham Hamilton for some help with this display. Jim and Graham didn't hesitate and jumped on board! We had a great selection of models on display being;
HMCS Protector
HMAS Nizam
HMAS Vampire
HMAS Bathurst
HMAS Sydney
HMAS Canberra
USS Missouri
Giuseppe Garibaldi
We had each class of kids for around 15mins listening to our speeches with a small Q & A. After each session finished the kids were invited to walk around the back of the models so they could get a better look, this was by far the kids favorite time as Jim would follow the kids with Missouri's turrets and then fire her guns. They absolutely loved it lol. From students to teachers the models were a hit. Thank you very much Jim and Graham for your help as it would not have been so good with out you guys :clap: :clap: :clap: I only have two photos at the moment as soon as I get some from the school I will post them.

Excellent stuff guys. The kids really love it. I've done a few over the years from a tiny school of 19 kids right up to a school of about 300. Best fun is that all the boys around Mel's class at school think it must be so much fun to have a Dad who does model ships. She's taken photos along of her actually driving them and they are all jealous.
