'The Cornish Caretakers' and Heritage Trust

9th January 2019

As part of an initiative to promote a new Cornish archive facility, The Cornish Caretakers and Cornish Heritage have been visiting schools across Cornwall.
The Cornish Caretakers performed a play which taught everyone about the achievements of prominent Cornish heroes. Lots of notable Cornish people from different fields made appearances, to name but a few: John Couch Adams (who discovered Neptune), Emily Hobhouse (welfare campaigner), Bob Fitzsimmons (three division world boxing champion), Mary Kelynack (who walked to see The Great Exhibition in London in 1851) and even Bobby Leach (who was the second person to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel).
The children thoroughly enjoyed the performance and it made them realise how local people have had an impact on the whole world.
To promote the new archive building, we learnt about some of the very old documents that will be housed there. We took a moment to think about, not only Cornish heroes of the past like Richard Trevithick, but also more recent heroes like Helen Glover and Roger Taylor.
Year 6 participated in a workshop that taught them about using primary resources to research Cornish heroes. Cornish Heritage supported the day and provided a selection of documents for the children to use.
