Hyping Up Our Heritage

The History, Modern Studies & RME department are holding events this week to celebrate Heritage Awareness Day on 6 October.

Scotland’s first-ever Heritage Awareness Day is taking place on Friday 6 October, with audiences across Scotland encouraged to celebrate what heritage means to them in this year of History, Heritage and Archaeology. Every community, school, organisation and individual in Scotland is being encouraged to take part.

To celebrate, Jordanhill School is finding out about learners and teachers’ favourite historical places to visit and asking what people think is the ‘Worst Crime in History’.  On Heritage Awareness Day itself, the teachers of the History department will be dressing up as their favourite historical character.

Mrs Wood, Principal Teacher of History, Modern Studies & RME said:

“We’re delighted to be holding events for Heritage Awareness Day. This is a great opportunity for everyone in the community to celebrate local history and what heritage means to them.’’


If you would like to get involved and contribute your own ideas on your favourite historical place  or ‘Worst Crime in History’, please send Mrs Wood your completed form, which can be downloaded from the link below this article.
