The Bellahouston World War One exhibition will be on display at Kelvingrove Museum and Art gallery over the Spring holiday.
The exhibition will take pride of place on the East Balcony. This is a large space upstairs overlooking the Grand Central Hall
This exhibition aims to tell some of the stories of ex-pupils and teachers of Bellahouston Academy who laid down their lives in the Great War. All branches of the services are represented. Our ex-pupils were found in trenches, on planes, waging war on every front, from Flanders fields to Mesopotamia, from the dangers of the North sea and the Atlantic ocean.
In June 2014, 40 pupils and 5 staff from the school visited the trenches and cemeteries of Belgium and France so that they could learn, hands on, for themselves some of the conditions faced by ex-pupils of our school.
Bellahouston Fundraises for Save the Children
After an inspiring presentation from Anne Strang, a volunteer speaker for the International charity 'Save the Children', a group of senior pupils from Bellahouston Academy organised a cultural evening filled with food, colours and music from the Indian and Pakistani subcontinents of Asia. The dance and entertainment extravaganza raised £315 which was donated to 'Save the Children' - well done to all concerned!
