NSW Governor will bring treasure to Casino Public School
The Governor of New South Wales his Excellency General David Hurley and his wife will visit the 150 students at Casino Public School this Friday to show them historical artefacts.
The visit is part of the State Library of NSW’s FAR Out! Treasures to the Bush learning program that gives regional and remote students the opportunity to see significant historic objects.
“I’m thrilled to be part of the program which is heading to Casino for the first time. I will be talking with students about what it’s like to be Governor of NSW, and share fascinating stories about my predecessors,” the Governor said.
The students will get to have a look at letters from Governor Arthur Phillip, the first Governor of NSW, and Governor Lachlan Macquarie’s journals from the late 18th century.
Governor Hurley will also bring a ceremonial sword, scabbard and lanyards belonging to Governor Rowland; his own medals and a place setting for a vice regal dinner at Government House.
