Hooe Primary School Community Archive
Hooe Primary school has been working in partnership with Plymouth and West Devon Record Office on an Extended Schools project in order to create a community archive.
Pupils from the school looked at some archives held at their local record office and interviewed ex-pupils and local residents in order to gain a clearer picture of the past. Pupils wanted to find out more about their local community, what it was like being a pupil at the school in the past, living through the Second World War and how the area has developed over the last 100 years.
The community archive forms part of the whole school’s website.
