National Records of Scotland schools programme

The National Records of Scotland has announced details of its 2011-12 schools workshop programme, Scottish Archives for Schools, at www.scottisharchivesforschools.org/workshops.asp.

The programme has several free workshops open to primary (P3-P7) and secondary school pupils (S1–S6), using primary sources held within the National Records of Scotland and in support of the Curriculum for Excellence and National Qualification.

Topics include:

Tartan: a Chequered Tale
Witches on Trial
Scottish Census records The Snail in the Bottle
The Snail in the Bottle
The Age of Reformation
Migration and Empire

It looks like the workshops are only offered in Edinburgh itself, at the former GROS's Education Room in the NRS building, and on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from September 6th 2011 to March 29th 2012. You'll need to book in advance for your class, and there is a limit to 33 pupils per session.

Further details are available on the site.

(With thanks to the NRS)
