Adopt-A-Grave brings together the skills of research and website technology with conservation, gardening and
Students taking part in the program research and interpret an important period and theme of local
history and are empowered to present this information in a meaningful way to their peers and others.
They are introduced to East Perth Cemeteries and trained in maintenance skills, by expert
curatorial and heritage staff. They learn research skills at the State Library of Western Australia and finally create web site information pages at
school. These are made available to the public through the National Trust website.
The students are encouraged to follow their own interests and make the website information
interesting for others of a similar age group.
