For the first exhibition each pen will hold 5 audio tracks:
Tracks 1 & 2: Sister Agnes Cecilia Boyle reflecting on being a student at St Joseph’s School, joining the Sisters, her Teacher Training and then life as a Music Teach in Mount Isa,Queensland.
Track 3: The Vision Established – Dr Victor Couch AM, Foundation Chairman of the Catholic College of Education Sydney, reflecting on the establishment of Catholic Teachers College.
Track 4: Age of Change – Dr Victor Couch reflecting on the transition to Catholic College of Education Sydney.
Track 5: Untried Concept – reflections of Mr Bill Blissenden and Mr John Murray (lay academic staff members).
The Audio Pens will also assist teachers as they lead their students into a deeper exploration of the importance of education.
The Museum is open daily 10am - 4pm.
