This work is the beginning of a development,
which can continue on in future years. Many of the stories and
interesting data from this historically wealthy area will be in
electronic format. This will ensure their endurance and their
availability for future generations. Children will begin to have an

Encouraging children to use computers and
technology in a constructive manner is another aim of the project.
Scanning pictures, recording voices and using programmes such a s
PowerPoint is giving children an opportunity to gain first-hand experience
of modern technology. The final product should be a testament to
the work undertaken.
