£10,000 award to build a South West Classics Hub
14 October 2016
The charity Classics for All has just awarded the Department of Classics & Ancient History a £10,000 grant to make Bristol the centre of a South West Classics Hub. The funding will have a strong focus on widening participation and introducing local children to classical subjects, including Latin and Greek, which they might otherwise not have the chance to study. Genevieve Liveley and a local teacher, Hannah Walsh, will be coordinating the hub and have already started to build up a network of schools who want to participate. They will be providing training and mentoring in selected local schools to support the sustainable in-house introduction of Latin, producing a digital toolbox of Classics teaching and learning resources, and championing the subject across the existing South West Classics community.
