School takes students back to the Dark Ages

THE Middle Ages are set to come to life tomorrow night when the Warwick State High School library is transformed into A Night at the Medieval Museum.

The school's Year 8 students have journeyed back in time as part of their Australian Curriculum history studies, and will display a range of their works including models of everything from castles to trebuchets.

Warwick High School head of social science Leisa Betts said the library would be overflowing with students and their families.

"Families can come and take part in an old-fashioned night of fun and festivities," she said.

The medieval theme will reign supreme throughout the night, with students and their families able to partake in a feast of chicken legs, chunky bread and apple slices before taking part in games including apple-bobbing and hoop throwing.

A highlight of the night will be a demonstration of medieval sword skills by Warwick State High School teacher Mr Robinson and members of the Black Wolf Medieval re-enactment group.

A Night at the Medieval Museum will be in the school library, 5-6.30pm tomorrow.
