Cathkin pupils take a trip back in time

Rutherglen Reformer - - Election Special -

Life in me­dieval times was the lat­est les­son for S1 pupils from Cathkin who par­tic­i­pated in a trip to Stir­ling Cas­tle.

The pupils, who have been ex­plor­ing “the Nor­mans In Scot­land”topic in his­tory, en­joyed a very in­ter­ac­tive and en­joy­able trip or­gan­ised by the his­tory depart­ment.

The sun was shin­ing and pupils were able to take in the beauty and fea­tures of the cas­tle that had formed some as­pects of class­room learn­ing.

Pupils also got an op­por­tu­nity to dress up in cloth­ing from the time and learnt about the weaponry from the time in an ed­u­ca­tional les­son de­liv­ered by Stir­ling Cas­tle.

S1 pupil Jay Wil­liamson said:“While we wan­dered through the cas­tle, we met some in­ter­est­ing char­ac­ters. They told us all about life in the cas­tle and an­swered all of our cu­ri­ous ques­tions.

“They told us the mean­ings of the ta­pes­tries on the wall and facts like maids, ser­vants and sta­ble boys weren’t paid.

“Per­son­ally, I think we all en­joyed our trip back in his­tory!”
