Pupils can make a splash on high seas

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Ruther­glen pri­mary school pupils are still be­ing urged to travel back in time and imag­ine what life was like on board a First World War bat­tle­ship in a na­tional com­pe­ti­tion.

‘Sto­ries of the Sea — Hold The Front Page!’is the third an­nual schools’ com­pe­ti­tion or­gan­ised by Royal Bri­tish Le­gion Scot­land.

Funded by Co­op­er­a­tive Funer­al­care and The Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment, the chal­lenge asks P5, P6 and P7 pupils to pro­duce a news­pa­per ar­ti­cle about life on the high seas dur­ing the First World War.

Kevin Gray MM, Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer of Le­gion Scot­land, said:“By ask­ing pupils to trans­port them­selves back to a time when our Royal Navy was the most pow­er­ful in the world we hope to help them un­der­stand and ap­pre­ci­ate how World War One af­fected those who served at sea.

The date for reg­is­tra­tion for the com­pe­ti­tion is fast ap­proach­ing and must be made by Novem­ber 17.

The clos­ing date for en­tries will be March next year.
