Looking for new ways to connect your classroom to your community?

Discover local history like never before.


Our Stories Project is an oral history programme where the children are the interviewers. 

Design for year 5-8, Our Stories helps children learn listening and interviewing skills, builds empathy and experience local history first-hand.

Plus, you classroom will be part of a wider, oral history project. Each story collected adds to the Our Stories archive. 

The best stories from each region are edited and mapped to the Our Stories App, where they can be discovered by locals and visitors.


We have seen this project connect people and we believe these engagements build a stronger community.

Our curriculum is place-based, which makes Our Stories Project perfect for our students.

After hearing what she survived, I don't think those kids will ever look at an old woman the same again.
