Was with our Chair Mary Sullivan, and committee member/Foresters Forest Project Manager Sue Middleton at Lydbrook School this morning, talking with the students and the teachers about their local history work which has been embedded in their history curriculum the last three years. We are working on ways to encourage other schools to follow this wonderful lead. Impressive work, impressive students who are interested and engaged by understanding their roots – and for many this is literally true given their forebears are from the village. Future local historians! This is part of the mural they have created in their assembly hall with a local artist – the children did the coal mines you can see in one of the photos. Excellent.
