Experience Life in a Traditional One-Room School

Recess at Maryboro Lodge's SchoolRelive the experience of a one-room school at Maryboro Lodge's this summer. Students will get a taste of a traditional school curriculum, sing period songs, writing on slates and, of course, the three R's: reading, writing and 'rithmetic. Helping to tend a vegetable garden, they will have the opportunity to enjoy the fruits of their labour. Scholars are strongly encouraged to wear historic costume.

Maryboro Lodge's school program is free, however space is limited and pre-registration is required.

The school operates from 9 am to noon on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
