Local History: Harris Primary School
This half term we are learning about the history of Harris Primary School. We have learned who Edmund Harris was and what happened to his wealth when he died. The boys and girls discussed which of our school values Edmund Harris shared including trust, equality and love. We listened to a story about the Harris Orphanage and the activities and education the children did to improve their lives. Finally, we learned that the Orphanage changed into a primary school that continued to educate many children in Fulwood. Eventually, the school moved from its orginal site and is now located to where we are now. Some of our children have stopped by the old Harris Orphanage site and had their photo taken outside. Keep a look out for our non-chronological reports about Harris Primary School.
