In History, Year 7 are conducting research into the history of South Bombay, particularly around the Fort area.
Each has been researching an historic building in the city and we heard some of them present to the group
while out on the trip.
The main part of our field trip was to visit St Thomas' Cathedral and to take recordings of the numerous
memorials on the walls to people of days gone by. We will be analysing these in class to try to draw up a
picture of what life was like in the 19th century in Bombay and also to recognise the limitations of such sources
of information.
Thanks to Ms Deepali Furtado for her huge support on the trip. She is an expert on Bombay history and was
able to give excellent explanations to the group on some of the key historical features of the city.
