Special e-book and teaching resource
Students will love learning about their city through the eyes of Gilbert, Melbourne's first cat — the Tassie tabby who arrived on the Enterprize with the first settlers.
Gilbert and the Guardians of Melbourne
tells the story of Melbourne, including Aboriginal history, via a series of city "guardians", or historical landmarks, representing culture, industry, events and other elements that shaped Melbourne — reminding us of how far we've come as a city.
Developed by the History Teachers' Association of Victoria and Melbourne Day Committee, the engaging and colourful e-book is ideal for teachers to use in classrooms and parents at home. It will soon be available as a free download
from the HTAV and Melbourne Day websites: HTAV.asn.au and MelbourneDay.com.au
