What Victorian teachers have said about the Programme . . . .


“A fascinating exhibition. Year 7 students were very interested and engaged looking at all the showcases and talking to Garry. The mummy exhibit was a favourite. Garry Stone runs a very organised and professional incursion, supplying slides, question (and answer) sheets for students to complete.
His incursion definitely added to our study of Ancient Egypt.”

Sue Caleo Cheltenham Secondary College, May 2015


“The students found the presentation and the travelling museum very engaging and it helped them greatly with a deeper understanding of the Ancient World. Garry has put a lot of time, energy and passion into creating a worthwhile incursion for our students.”

Andrew Lawrence, Yarra Valley Grammar, November 2015


“Parkdale Secondary College has engaged Garry for the past few years in our junior history programme presenting on Ancient Cultures. His presentations have been engaging and interesting to our students. He has catered for all levels, demonstrating knowledge of regions studied as a speaker and producing interesting hands- on exhibits with accompanying worksheets. We have found his programme to be educational and a worthwhile incursion as part of our studies and have continued to use his expertise and knowledge within our junior history curriculum”

Christine Braybrooke , Parkdale Secondary College, Feb 2016

Lalor SC theatre thumb


Garry presented the history Expo with energy and enthusiasm, this passed along to our students who were engaged in the exhibition and interested in the information during the lecture. They learnt about some interesting details about the Beginnings of Civilisations and were curious about the artefacts in the exhibition.

Leisha Jungawallah, Glen Waverley Secondary College, October 2015


“Garry has an  entertaining yet informative approach to his archaeology presentation,  made all the more relevant by the recounting of his experiences on  actual archaeological digs. His impressive collection of ancient  artefacts (replica and genuine) fascinates the students, and Garry has a story for just about every item.”

John Arbuckle: St. Leonard’s College. August 2013
