Three senior pupils are undertaking the Scottish Studies course this year. They each have to select a topic, set themselves aims, carry out research and produce an activity to demonstrate their findings. This term they have been focusing on research skills and exploring resources available to them.This included two trips out of school as detailed below. Thanks to staff of Inverness Town Library and the Highland Archive Centre for their time and help.

Town Library Trip

On the 12th September, the Scottish Studies group took a tour to the Town Library to try and find information on each of our topics and learn how the library works and what kind of collections of books they have. They have a wide variety of books and of different genres. I found the trip to the library very useful in helping me find the research I need for my report and would consider going back to gather more information.

Archive Trip

Last week, on the 27th September, the three of us went to the Archive Centre to research for the topics which we chose. When we arrived at the Archive Centre, we were given a tour of the building. We were shown where old documents were stored and how old documents were repaired if they had rips. Personally, I did not learn a lot from the Archive centre because they did not have the things I needed for my topic but others found it useful.

Tha leabharlann agus ionad tasglann tadhal a’ còrdadh rium. Tha e uabhasach inntinneach agus feumail agus is toigh leam ag ionnsachadh sgìlean ùra nuadh cuideachd. Chunnaic mi seann leabhraichean agus cinneadh craobh-teachlaich.
