The Bourne Hall was abuzz with excitement on Friday June 21 as it hosted the annual Year 7 Family History Afternoon. The event brought together a large gathering of parents, grandparents and other relatives to explore the fascinating family history projects created by our Year 7 students.

Each year, as part of their History curriculum, every Year 7 student researches an aspect of their family’s past. As part of the project, they conduct an interview with a relative and take a deep dive into a particularly interesting part of their history. The students then compile their findings into displays which are presented at the showcase.

The standard of work was excellent this year; it was great to see the rich tapestry of personal histories that make up our school community. We extend our thanks to the relatives who generously shared their stories and to everyone who came to show their support on the day.
