My Town Project
What is the project?
This project connects, engages and empowers learners with the past, present and future of the town in which they live; promoting entrepreneurial skills and opportunities.

The project will enable learners to develop a wide range of transferable skills: research, educational, technical and social such as:
- independent research;
- collating and evaluating evidence; video creation;
- sound recording and editing;
- organisation and many more.
