Program Description

Historic Stewart Farm is now offering live, virtual school programs. Without leaving your classroom,  an experienced costumed guide will lead your class on a virtual tour around the Farmhouse, providing curriculum current interpretation. Explore the history of local holiday celebrations, family roles, and how newcomers shaped the environment around them. This 60-minute program costs $53 and will be booked on a first-come, first-served basis. Programs are available for booking now and take place Dec 2 to 18, Wed-Fri, at 10:30am.

To reserve your program spot please contact the Historic Stewart Farm at 604-591-4627 or email StewartFarm@surrey.ca. Please leave a message with the preferred date and grade level.

Please Note: We will be using the Microsoft Teams platform to deliver this program. To ensure a smooth program we require a technical ‘check-in’ prior to your scheduled program - we will discuss this with you upon booking. A projector, screen, and a laptop with speakers and microphone are required.

Hands On Activity Add-on:

A heritage craft activity is also available for an additional $25. The craft teaches students how to create their own wooden top, just like newcomer children in the past. This activity package must be picked up before your scheduled program and will be led by the heritage instructor after the program. The craft activity will take an additional 15-25 minutes after the program.
