Pupils in 18 Canterbury schools today will officially adopt local monuments to be used as the basis for cross-curricula work over the next two years, as part of a European project aimed at encouraging children's interest in historic and social environments.
Each EU member country has chosen one city to take part. In England the project is being co-ordinated by the Education Service of English Heritage, which chose Canterbury.
Pupils' work will be featured in exhibitions in Canterbury over the next two years and in a final exhibition in Brussels in 1997.
A resource pack launched today by the Council for Disabled Children and the National Children's Bureau will help schools to meet the new legal requirements to publish their policies on special educational needs. Schools must publish these policies by 1 August.
The pack, which includes a guide to help schools to conduct an internal review of plans and identify priorities, has been developed in conjunction with schools and local education authorities. It is available for £45, including p&p, from the National Children's Bureau, 0171-843 6028. Discounts for orders of 10 or more.
A unique course on Costume for the Stage and Screen offered by Bournemouth and Poole College of Art and Design has just been validated as an honours' degree course.
The three-year course equips students with the skills necessary to be successful in the entertainment industry. It is hoped students will work alongside professionals from the BBC, the Denver Colorado Ballet, P&O Cruises and Angels and Bermans, Europe's largest costumiers.Reuse content
