Archaeological dig to be conducted at school

Woy Woy Public School

An archaeological dig will be conducted by students at Woy Woy Public School on ground which was under the recently-removed demountable classroom.

“We know this building sat on that site for more than 20 years or longer, so who knows what will be found,” said joint principals Ms Ona Buckley and Mr Dan Betts in the school newsletter.

They said teacher Mr Andrew Brady was ready to lead the dig.

“Safe boundaries have been marked on the site.

“The site has been checked carefully by the demolishers, as well as Mr Brady, to ensure all glass objects and sharp items have been removed and catalogued so our students will not be harmed.

“A risk assessment has been completed and all is in readiness for the event.

“We have some excited students ready to be able to take part in this hands-on history dig.”
