Highgate schools go 100 years back in history for WW1 interactive exhibition
Schools dug deep into the history archives for a £9,000 lottery-funded interactive exhibition on the First World War.
Pupils from three schools researched and took part in a show commemorating the war’s centenary at Jacksons Lane arts centre in Archway Road.
Children from St Michael’s Primary School in North Road, Highgate, attended a series of workshops and put together research for the Highgate Camp Remembered exhibition last month, as well as attending the one-day show.
Meanwhile, pupils from Highgate Wood School in Montenotte Road, Crouch End, researched the people behind the names etched onto Highgate’s war memorials.
Finally, pupils from Highgate School in North Road filmed themselves performing a haunting version of The Last Post, which was shown at the exhibition.
