Canongate Primary School, St Andrews P3s and P4s visited us in the museum this morning to take part in our learning activities. They selected some of our old photographs depicting the town and its people and are planning to recreate some of the scenes for us to display over the summer. We are really looking forward to seeing the results. A Museum Loan Box with school artefacts such as an ink well and old school uniforms intrigued them before they finished off their morning with quizzes in the park. We thoroughly enjoyed sharing our museum with the children who were a credit to their school and its staff. Hope to see you again! 😊
