250th Anniversary of Captain Cook’s Arrival
Teacher resource books
29th April marks 250 years since James Cook stepped onto the sand at Kamay (Botany Bay). Many people are unaware of what actually happened on that day and the rest of Cook’s time here in 1770.
When Cook Came has been written and illustrated by teachers, with thorough research and consultation to create a true and balanced account of what happened when Cook came.
Today it is launched for the first time and available to purchase through the Aboriginal Studies Association. We are so excited about getting it into schools so that students can be better informed about such a significant part of our history.
