Across the life of the THI the Heritage Engagement Officer is offering Schools free heritage walks around the Town Centre. Working with the class teacher the walk can be developed individually for each school and class based on areas of interest and the desired curriculum experiences and outcomes. Key elements that can be included are:
- The Steeple
- Falkirk Herald Building
- Road Names and their meanings
- Falkirk Trinity Church
- Cross Keys Inn
- Changes in town centre use
During the walk pupils will have the opportunity to look at old photos, so they can visualise how things have changed. Following the walk teachers will receive copies of some historic photos for use in the classroom.
If you are interested in organising a walk for your class or school or want more information please contact Julia Branch.
