The setting is a Victorian Classroom where the pupils become Victorian scholars. The classroom is a reconstruction using original desks, blackboards, furniture and wall panelling from the Victorian era. The leading characters are provided by the visiting school (not AUST) and pupils relive the life of a Victorian child at school.
The Victorian Classroom provides pupils with the opportunity to be Victorian pupils and to experience for themselves what education during the period was really like. Costume is provided for everyone taking part in the scenario, including teachers and assistants.
