WDM Virtual Coffee Club - School Days
Grab a cup of coffee and settle in as we explore the Western Development Museum collection while you connect virtually and reflect with others on experiences from the past and/or your youth. In our School Days session, you will take a look back and compare how schools have changed in Saskatchewan since the early 1900s. Did you attend a rural one room schoolhouse or a school in a town or a city? How did you travel to school? What did you take for lunch? Hear about school supplies, recess and what classroom life was like for our province’s settler children. The session takes place via Zoom. Pre-registration is required so we can provide you a link to the program. To register, go to https://wdm.ca/virtual-coffee-club-registration-form/ or call Karla at 1-639-391-8073.
This event is free.
Western Development Museum
The Western Development Museum’s (WDM) facilities are situated in Treaty 4 and Treaty 6 territories and the Homeland of the Métis. The provincial boundaries for Saskatchewan also include Treaty 2, Treaty 5, Treaty 8 and Treaty 10 territories. The WDM exhibit locations are located in Moose Jaw, North Battleford, Saskatoon and Yorkton and our corporate office is located in Saskatoon. Our vision, mission and mandate guides how the Museum serves the public and the benefit we are trying to make for all Saskatchewan residents. This is done through a variety of exhibits and programs offered throughout the year. Our vision is a Saskatchewan where everyone belongs and histories matter. We believe that people’s lives are enriched by connecting with Saskatchewan’s diverse histories. We also believe that people experience a sense of place and belonging because their histories are shared through the WDM.
