The History Department has exciting news...
5th December 2012
“The History Department has exciting news. Cumberland School has been chosen by the Imperial War Museum as one of only four London schools, to take part in a project called New Perspectives to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the First World War. This project will take place in spring 2014 – during the start of the centenary commemoration of the First World War. Cumberland School pupils will be involved in the school-based project researching and creating a short animation film on ‘New Perspectives’ of World War One. They will be focusing on the War in Africa. This is going to be a very exciting opportunity for our pupils to be involved in such a prestigious project, working alongside professionals from the Imperial War Museum. More details will follow soon. Meanwhile, we need your help! We are asking pupils, parents and carers and staff to help us in starting to research the First World War in Africa. There are some materials available on this topic from a British and European point of view. However we would be grateful for assistance with obtaining some materials on African involvement in the war from an African viewpoint. •Do you know someone who was involved in the First World War in Africa? •Do you have any artefacts, diaries, journals or letters from somebody involved in the First World War in Africa? If you think you could assist us with researching the First World War in Africa from an African perspective, please contact one of the History Teachers”. Read More
