Significant Individuals: Caroline Chisholm (Stage 2, Stage 3)
You may know the name Caroline Chisholm or recognise her face from the $5 note but what was her contribution to colonial society and why was she known as the emigrant’s friend?
In this virtual excursion, you will learn more about this determined woman who changed the lives of many through her problem solving, philanthropy and charitable works.
Follow her journey across continents and uncover the characteristics which enabled her to succeed in a society ruled by men. A woman of vision with a can-do attitude, she was responsible for establishing the Female School of Industry for the Daughters of European Soldiers in Madras and the Female Immigrants home in Sydney. She even set up an employment agency in Australia!
Using artefacts from the State Library of NSW’s collection, students are invited to explore life in early Sydney, engage in online discussions and activities.
This is a story that will inspire you!
