PUPILS of Lache Primary School have been making history as part of an exhibition currently on display in Chester’s History and Heritage Centre.
All the year groups from nursery level to Year 6 youngsters took part in the snap-happy project, as part of the centre’s Lache Now and Then exhibition, which runs until November 26.
Jan Sproston, teacher and family learning co-ordinator at Lache Primary School, said the pupils had enjoyed taking part in the initiative, which saw present-day life around Lache captured.
She added: “Children took part with supervisors with a number of disposable cameras the visiting photographer, David Heke, had given them all for the day.
“They went around the school, taking photos of a day in the life at Lache Primary.
“Each group went around the school grounds, inside and out, and they really enjoyed themselves.
“David then spread out all the photos and gathered children around to allow them to explain what was going on in each picture.”
The children’s pictures of action in cookery classes, art sessions, fun in the playground and use of the sporting areas is now being showcased in the city centre facility.
Joining the pupils’ photographs are pictures taken by Lache residents and members of the Lache community action team, capturing snapshots of the area.
There are also photos of Lache Primary School from the 1930s to the 1950s, featuring year groups, staff members and how the school originally looked after it was built in August 1935.
It is hoped pupils of the school will be paying a visit to Chester History and Heritage Centre during the Lache Now and Then exhibition to see their efforts on display.
