FMSA - not a radio station

The familiar faces of Dr. Kathy Wheeler, Kristina Miller, Jennifer Leak, Mary van Blerk, Helena le Roux, and Andre Ross.

On November 7, the Forum for School Museums and Archives (FMSA) had its quarterly meeting at the Mitre.

The star of the show was our very own Paul Murray, ODA and Bishops Archivist, whopresented his recent research at St John's College using our new super-sized smart TV for his Power Point presentation.

The focus of the day was delving into archives to extract deeper meaning from historical events. Paul used the example of Bishop J W Colenso from the mid-19th century, advocating for a thorough investigation spanning various fields.

In attendance were some familiar faces from Peninsula schools - Kathy Wheeler, Kristina Miller, Jennifer Leak, Mary van Blerk, Helena le Roux, and Andre Ross. They gathered, for scones and a lovely cup of tea, whilst taking part in informal discussion and historical musings.

Looking ahead, their next meeting is penciled in for the first quarter of 2024 at the Mitre once again because it is such a perfect setting to engage and share their passion for the archives.
