Books, reading and life in a school library

Fereday Project

| 1 Comment

It is the time of year when S2 History pupils are thinking about starting the Fereday Project based on local studies. Orkney’s rich history and culture forms the background to the Fereday Prize run by the Orkney Heritage Society. Set up by former principal teacher of History at KirkwallGrammar school, Ray Fereday, the prize is awarded annually to S2 pupils for an historical investigation on local history with a view to the best projects being placed in the Orkney Library & Archive. The winners are usually those who have researched and written about original topics that have seldom been documented elsewhere.

To help our pupils, here is a guide to using the local studies section in the school library.

 The document is also availble via the Stromness Academy Library Glow group in the documents under ‘History’ for those who have access.
