Memories of Arleston

Some of our pupils have been involved in a recent community project that enabled them to work with older people living in Arleston and help them reflect on their memories of living and growing up in our local community.


This inter-generational project brought together different generations and helped young people develop journalistic and film making skills and prepare questions that would provoke discussion about what life in Arleston was like in times gone past and how it compares and contrasts to how things are now.


This short inspirational film shares lovely and fascinating memories and shines a light on how children and older people can work together and develop their shared understanding of each other.
