Cheerful Chores with Clementina (Foundation to Year 2)

Focuses on the life of Clementina Burgess (nee Grigor) and her role at Bankfoot House

Cheerful Chores with Clementina is a unique learning experience delivered on site at the state heritage-listed Bankfoot House Heritage Precinct (BHHP).

Developed by teachers and the Sunshine Coast Council’s Cultural Heritage Services team, the Cheerful Chores with Clementina education program focuses on the life of Clementina Burgess (nee Grigor) and her role at Bankfoot House. The BHHP Education Program is aligned to the HASS Australian Curriculum achievement standards for each year level, with learning outcomes and relevant content descriptors identified for each activity.

Participation in hands-on activities allows students to develop skills and engage with local history, learning about Clementina and what her childhood would have been like at Bankfoot House. Students will learn about the daily chores Clementina would have had to undertake to assist her family in running Bankfoot House.
