We are incredibly proud of our year 5 and 6 pupils for putting on such a great exhibition on Saturday. This term they have been learning about our school becoming a Military Hospital during World War 1. On Friday they opened the school to some local schools and on Saturday it was opened to the public as part of the community Made in Roath Festival. We had approximately 300 visitors on the Saturday. We were also delighted to be joined on Saturday by Glamorgan Archives and the Firing Line Museum from Cardiff Castle. We were also delighted to welcome Jenny Rathbone AM to the exhibition. It was great to welcome Cynthia whose father John Ford had been a patient in the hospital over 100 years ago and also Liz whose Grandfather, Gordon Edwards had also been a patient.
The children recreated a Hospital Ward as it would have been 100 years ago and displayed writing, artwork, models and much more. The children also performed music from WW1. Tours of the school were given to all visitors and it was fantastic to see such confidence from the children. Feedback from visitors was really positive. Thank you also to the staff for coming into school on a Saturday to support the event and to Tesco for their kind donation of refreshments for the event. It was a very proud day for the school and it was great to share the unique history of our school with the community.
