Welcome to the Albany Military Hospital website. This website was initially created by year 6 pupils as part of a 2014 project and is now updated by staff and pupils at Albany Primary School. Between 2014-18 we held an annual exhibition to commemorate the centenary of World War 1. This link will take you to a YouTube video showing the work we have done as a school and community between 2014-18. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vPRuhn7tpBI
The project has helped our school and wider community commemorate the centenary of World War 1. The whole project was recognised by the Welsh Heritage Schools Initiative and won a Moondance Foundation award from the WHSI.
Through the project we have been contacted by people whose relatives had spent time in the hospital as patients during WW1. This has provided exciting learning opportunities for the children to learn through real history and fully understand the part our school played during World War 1. We regularly update the @Albany1914 Twitter feed with any information that we find. After four consecutive annual exhibitions we took a year off in 2019 and during 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic but we fully intend on having an exhibition in the 2021-22 academic year. Further information about the exhibition will be published on here and our @Albany1914 twitter feed.
Below is a video showing our first exhibition at the school.
