Westwood with Iford School News

A very Happy New Year from us all at Westwood School. We were delighted to see so many of you at our Christmas Fair and now we are back for another exciting term.

Thank you to those of you who attended our Westwood Oral History Project launch meeting. We are looking forward to getting this underway and are now in a position to start compiling our group of community members who would like to share their memories. If you, or someone you know, would be happy to chat to some of our wonderful children about living and growing up in the village, do please get in touch. Our email address is heritage@westwoodwithiford.org or you can call the school on 862408. We would love to hear from you.

Although this is a short term we have so much to look forward to - our dancers are taking part in another Bath Forum extravaganza, and we have a whole school Ocarina day coming up. You can keep up to date with all that is happening at your local school on our website: westwoodwithiford.org or via our class blogs at westwoodblogs.org.

Westwood Heritage Oral History Project

At Westwood with Iford School we will soon be starting an exciting project and we are looking for people that would like to share their memories of living, working, growing up and going to school in the Westwood area.

We have been lucky enough to receive a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for an exciting project, Westwood Heritage Oral History Project, taking place in and around the Westwood Community. Made possible by money raised by National Lottery players, the project focuses on using the children’s interviewing and broadcasting skills to capture precious memories from members of the community that we can share with future generations. We will also be holding larger groups sessions where we will broadcast Westwood Radio live from the venue, so anyone with historic photos or artefacts will be most welcome.

We will be holding a ‘Mince Pies and Memories’ launch meeting on Thursday 7th December at 7pm in the Westwood Parish Rooms, so please come along for a chat and to find out more.

Alternatively, please contact school on 01225 862408 or email heritage@westwoodwithiford.org if you would like to get involved.

Westwood with Iford School News

A big hello again from us all at Westwood with Iford Primary School. We are very much back in to the excitement of a new term, having welcomed our new reception entrants who have settled wonderfully well.

The year has already got off to a fantastic start with an exciting project planned that, we hope, will involve as many members of the Westwood Community as possible. The Westwood Oral History project will focus on understanding and sharing the rich heritage of the village and local community. We would like to bring members of the community together to share their life memories and experiences of living, schooling and working in Westwood over time which will be digitally recorded and preserved to share now and for years to come through interviews and live broadcasts with our pupils.

Watch this space for further information but if you are interested in taking part in this project, either with a story to tell or as a volunteer transcriber, please contact the school.

We are also looking for members of our community to join our governing body this year. Please contact the school office on 862408 if you are interested     Ian Rockey  Head teacher
