By B Townsend | Posted: Thursday May 5, 2016

During the week the Year 9 classes, as part of our introduction to OBHS and its surrounds unit visited Toitu Otago Settlers Museum.

The student's learnt about Dunedin's founding fathers and their influence on the establishment of our school and at the same time discovering what Dunedin was like in the late 1800's. They also had the opportunity to analyse primary research sources on what it was like to be a student at Otago Boys' in its early days. 

Students had the opportunity to view some of Alexander Aitken's work whilst he was serving in World War I and a book that chronicles all our old boys' who died whilst serving in both World War I and World War 2.
