WW1 Trenches Trip

The remaining part of our S2 History cohort visited the Trenches at Pollok Country Park on Thursday 7th June. They had a fantastic time communicating using semaphore, examining artifacts found on the Western Front and using a WW1 flight simulator. Well worth a visit! 

1960s Visitor

1a4 were delighted to have a visit from Mr McArthur, a survivor of the 1960s, as part of their studies on the time period. Mr McArthur took part in a question and answer session on 1960s culture, fashion, music and global events. The class thoroughly enjoyed hearing the stories of a man who lived through this time period.

S2 Holocaust Survivors Visit

This week as S2 History pupils had the privilege of meeting Holocaust Survivors Henry and Ingrid Wuga who told the story of their escape from Nazi Germany through the Kinder Transport in 1939. They discussed their experience of life in Britain as teenage Jewish refugees and allowed children to examine their artefacts and photographs from the time. The couple are 94 years old and have been happily married for 73 years and visit a variety of schools and educational events in conjunction with the Holocaust Memorial Trust to tell their story in the hopes of educating people about the horrors of the Holocaust and what can be done to ensure this never happens again.
