Marianne Williams

A great-great-granddaughter of Henry and Marianne Williams, Caroline Fitzgerald, is putting together a beautiful website of information particularly on Marianne. Although she’s designing it to supplement the NZ history curriculum, there is much on it which could be used in chapel services (and RE/RI lessons).

Caroline explains:

The focus of Admiral’s Dog is to produce a range of educational resources focusing on the real stories that make up New Zealand’s history. These will be in the form of hard copy and digital books, classroom resources, posters, documentary videos, podcasts and interactive games that can be used to help bring our history alive.

It is a work in progress, with new blog posts going up regularly, so keep an eye on it!
