Join a Museum educator and fellow students from around the state for a webinar focusing on stories from Western Australia’s Homefront during the World Wars.

Our webinars run for 45-60 minutes and are an opportunity for students to hear about stories from the Museum’s collection, providing additional content to your depth study focusing on World Wars. Webinars are run with cameras off to protect the privacy of those attending, however, we aim to make our webinar presentations as interactive as possible. 

With soldiers at the front, the Western Australian Homefront during the war has many stories of sacrifice, societal pressure, and change. Using objects found in the Museum’s galleries to tell personal stories from those in WA, students will hear about the experiences of those on the Homefront during the war. 

Student experience

Students will:

  • Hear stories of life on the Homefront in WA during the wars
  • Recognise how objects can be used to tell powerful, personal stories.
  • Consolidate classroom learning on the war in-depth project.
