Resident Archivist Transports Primary 4 to WWII Evacuation

The Primary 4 classes were transported back in time through an immersive "Evacuee Day" on March 20th. The girls arrived dressed as evacuees with props like suitcases, immersing themselves in wartime experiences.

The day included an Evacuee Drama workshop by our drama teachers. A highlight was a visit from our esteemed archivist, Ms. Margaret Imlah, who gave a fascinating presentation drawing from the School's extensive archives on student experiences during WWII. We are incredibly grateful for the invaluable work Ms. Imlah does in preserving and sharing our archives and the stories they contain.

This engaging event allowed students to gain knowledge about the children of the War while fostering empathy and connecting them to our history.
