CITY OF PORT ALBERNI
The Alberni Valley Museum offers a variety of school programs for Kindergarten through Grade Twelve classes. Interactive and engaging programs are offered at three sites: the Community Museum, McLean Mill National Historic Site and the Maritime Discovery Centre. Opportunities to discover Port Alberni and Provincial History, from First Nations Culture and Pioneer experiences to Forestry and Maritime heritage our programs address many of the prescribed learning outcomes of the Social Studies Curriculum. The Beta Sigma Phi Legacy Fund connects our students with the museum by providing the funds to cover the program fee for all Port Alberni School classes attending museum programs. In recognition of the sorority’s 60th Anniversary local chapters formed this legacy fund to enable Port Alberni youth to learn about their history and heritage.
Local History Study: Grades 8 to 12 A multi visit program that allows your students an opportunity to utilize the research resources of the Museum and Archives and discover some of the history of the Alberni Valley.
Shattered Lives: Grades 7-12The Internment of McLean Mill Japanese Community - During World War II, Japanese Canadians were transported to internment camps in the interior of the province. Using drama in education techniques, the interpretive staff and your students will explore the personal consequences of world events through the eyes of Terry, a ten year old girl living at the McLean Mill during this difficult time in British Columbia's past.
The Way It Was: Grades K-4 Our interpretive staff will journey with your students through the community re-created at McLean Mill. Together, we will explore the reality of working, living and learning in the early years: when a trip to town was an adventure, an argument with the boss might mean the loss of your home and you lived next door to your teacher!
