Lords, ladies, serfs and knights were a common sight at Wagga Christian College on Tuesday. The year eight group took part in the day, complete with fancy dress, to finish their studies on medieval times.
Throughout the day 56 students took part in activities including presenting a medieval family history, creating shields using rules of heraldry (creating a coat of arms) and designing a castle and explain how it would be defended.
A feast of peasant and nobles food was also served up and the health effects each of those diets would have had was discussed.
Middle school coordinator, Heather Mansley, said the day allows students to cement their understanding through hands on experience. Students were also required to work together to research the era.
