Dumbarton Academy

“The training in oral history collection that Dr Morrison delivered was just at the right level for my S2 class. Throughout it they were engaged, highly motivated and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. After the training they gained confidence interviewing each other and then put their skills to good use interviewing residents in a local care home about their superstitions and memories of local witch trials. It was a pleasure to see how different pupils engaged with the task and interacted with both each other and care residents.

Both the pupils and I hope to work with Dr Morrison on a future British Council project looking at the industrial heritage of both West Dunbartonshire and India”.
