Students and staff alike, had a great Colonial Day. Students truly experienced what it was really like in colonial times. Teachers and students spent the entire day participating in colonial activities, including playing games, making toys, seeing artifacts, listening to music and instruments from the time period and even ate a colonial lunch. We had many staff and students even dress for the special day!
A very special thank you to all the Goochland Community Volunteers. Many of Goochland’s residents were able to come out and share their knowledge, talents and artifacts of the Colonial times. This day was extra special because of them!!!
We also thank GES’s very own Mrs. Hawk and Mrs. Parrish for coordinating this day long event. It couldn’t have happened without them!!
