Celebrate Living History is a student internship program which focusses on connecting high school and university students to document stories of elders for future generations.
We organise workshops, exhibitions and assist students to write articles on lives of seniors.

Stella Wilkie was born on December 6, 1915 making her the grand age of 100, and only half way to 101.
Having never met someone of Stella’s age, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I went for a visit at her nursing home in Murwillumbah. When I arrived the nurse and I went looking for Stella in her room, but it was empty. She wasn’t sitting inside watching television with the other residents, instead we found her outside enjoying the sun by herself. I asked her about the letter of congratulations she’d received from the Queen for her 100th birthday.
