Pupils at Conisborough College laid on a feast for the launch of the Archibald Corbett Society

The Society has already created links with local schools on the Estate or its edge as witnessed at its launch by the wonderful food provided and served to guests by the year 10 catering students at Conisborough College and the thoroughly informative speech given by Helen Knowles, Head of Humanities at Sandhurst Junior School.

It now wants to develop those links by working in partnership with schools to provide educational materials and encourage setting up Corbett projects to promote the understanding of the importance of the family unit and of healthy lifestyles and give pupils an understanding of the history of the area they live in.

It will also link in with schools to work with pupils on its photographic project ‘Corbett Portraits’ and its film about the life of Archibald Corbett.
