The Forge, GSAP's Digital Archive Hub were delighted to host Year 4 Pupils from Steelstown Primary School today. All the pupils had a keen interest in the history of the local area and what it was like for their parents and grandparents growing up in the area.

Pupils got a chance to watch old video footage such as a short video of when the Shantallow Estate was getting built and what sports day was like back 50 year ago at Pennyburn.

We definitely have some future news reporters and TV presenters in the making.  

Pupils got a chance to scan, ditigise and print some old photos.

Some budding photographers

Big thanks to our local historian 'Tom Deeney' who gave the pupils an insight into the history of the Ballyarnett Racecourse.
