Researching House History in the Library

This morning Dr Dunn’s 3rd form History class spent a productive lesson researching the History of their boarding houses. They used the big screens and iPads to search the online Dictionary of National Biography and scoured the historical book stock for references to Picton and Hill, Murray and Orange etc. See the photos in the post below.

Did you know that apparently Wellington called Picton:

“a rough, foul-mouthed devil as ever lived”

Griffiths, Arthur. Wellington his comrades and contemporaries.(George Allen, 1897), p319
