The Scottish Diaspora Tapestry team, in partnership with Education Scotland, is offering Scottish schools an exciting opportunity to take part in a nationwide competition to plan, design and stitch your own diaspora story. The finished panels will be exhibited beside the Scottish Diaspora Tapestry in 2017. This exciting competition is open to both primary and secondary schools, and is designed to help pupils explore their community’s global links as well as their own creativity.
The project also offers a wealth of interdisciplinary learning experiences, with lots of potential outcomes relevant to the current curriculum. Full teachers’ notes, including a guide to curriculum links, and guidance notes for pupil’s are available on the Scottish Diaspora Tapestry website
The Scottish Diaspora Tapestry Schools Competition will run from September 2016 until Easter 2017. Please complete the registration form to register participation in the competition, and return it by email it to Sharon Beck.
