History

History is important.

"If you don't know [your family's] history, then you don't know anything. You are a leaf that doesn't know it is part of a tree".

Michael Crichton

The study of our history is a way to put the pieces of the past together and show how we came to be where we are today.  

Our aim when teaching History is to enrich and delight, and to foster a desire for knowledge.  History should be taught through its objects and its stories.  We want our children to have enquiring minds, to question the traditional views of History and to learn from the darker periods of History to be able to contribute a socially responsible view of the world.
