Pupils can make a splash on high seas
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.
