Mair Education: learning for life.

04-12-2008 | Local pupils in the dock

As part of a feasibility study for Kirklees Culture & Leisure Services, Sara organised a visit for Year 7 pupils to Dewsbury Town Hall Old Court Room to capture their responses to this formidable and evocative Victorian venue.

The visit was followed by workshops where activities were used to identify requirements for the resources in a fun and stimulating way. The research was part of a study for Kirklees Culture & Leisure Services into opportunities for the development of an area of Dewsbury Town Hall with the aim of increasing the number of young people visiting the Town Hall.

As well as consulting with local young people and teachers, Sara talked to partners, such as Young People Services and the Community Cohesion Team, to investigate how a resource based on the Old Court Room could be used to help develop a shared sense of belonging amongst local young people and support the community cohesion agenda.
