A school project to research the history of Barberton has left the grade fours at Barberton Primary with a different perspective of their home town.
The learners were given an assignment to collect information about the town and to compile a booklet of everything they have learned.
It was a social science project they had to do as part of their 2017 syllabus.
The pupils did well and many received good marks for their final product with Caitlyn Whitlock who got the highest for her excellent project.
According to Ingrid Seipel, a teacher from the school, the school is grateful for all the support the learners received from the community.
“We want to express our gratitude to Barberton Museum, the Mining Museum, and the Barberton Information Centre for assisting the learners while gathering information.”
