St Francis Catholic Primary School, A Voluntary Academy

Together we are exploring our special gifts; Together we are growing towards God.

'The Way We Were'  -  Oral History Project 


A series of recorded interviews for radio with older people of the parish, and undertaken by some pupils in Year 4 at St Francis, were broadcast  on BCB 106.6 FM.

Each programme is half an hour in length.

The initiative was mounted in collaboration with Bradford Community Broadcasting and with the support of school staff and of course all those people who kindly volunteered to be interviewed. 

Again, this was an experimental endeavour and the children, in meeting with senior people, conversing with them and eliciting a wealth of experience and memory, real living history, are to be congratulated on their achievement.
