The children in year 6 are currently researching the history of the school and learning about World War 1. They launched a new website a couple of weeks ago and have been sharing their learning through it. Last week we had contact from a lady whose Grandfather was a patient at Albany Military Hospital in 1915. He was an Australian soldier who was injured in the Battle of Gallipoli. This is a very exciting opportunity for the children who have received photo's of him and have now arranged a to meet his Granddaughter. The children are planning to share what they know about the school as a hospital and also to learn about the soldier and create a profile of him for their upcoming exhibition. We are also expecting a visit from Cynthia, a local resident whose father was a patient in the hospital during World War 1. A group of pupils are also visiting Glamorgan Archives this Thursday to do some further research. We are all very excited about the exhibition on Saturday 17th October and look forward to seeing members of our community on the day. Further information will be available on our www.albanymilitaryhospital.co.uk website.
