Voyage of discovery for Hillmorton pupils
Pupils at Hillmorton Primary School presented their work to sponsors Urban & Civic before the holiday, after a recent art project inspired by RadioStation Rugby's history.
The heritage-based project saw 233 pupils visiting the site’s original C Station building, currently home to some of the station’s archive equipment, and used to send the first transatlantic telephone call. Projects included modelling, printing, photography and filming.
Head Catherine Crisp said: “The opportunity to work with the masts site developers on, not only a scientific and technical, but also a creative project, was something we were very excited to take part in.”
Joanne Thomas, of Urban & Civic, said: “We look forward to continuing to work with Hillmorton Primary School and other local schools, including our own at Houlton when it opens next year, to bring more opportunities for children to learn about development and topics like ecology, architecture and construction.”
