Melville Intermediate - Jamie (and Melville) Famous in Scotland!

We've just started our work on Cultural Diversity which is our unit of work for this term.  Each of our students is researching a culture and as part of that culture is going to condcut an interview with someone from a different culture.  Jamie from Room Five is looking at Celtic/Scottish culture.  Earlier this week Jamie used google to locate some class pages from Scotland and left a comment asking for some assistance with her research questions.  The original post with the questions is here.  Its fair to say that she has been thrilled by the response and as a class we are very excited.  Jamie has recieved some wonderful feedback and we've discovered and made some wonderful connections with classes and students around the world. 

We'd like to thank everyone that has responded already to Jamie and in particular we'd like to thank the staff and pupils from P6/7 Lochardil Primary School in Scotland for their simply awesome response to Jamies Questions, which you can read by clicking here. 


  1. Thank you for the mention on your page!

    It's great having this link with a school in New Zealand. You've inspired us to find out a bit more about your culture.

    We'd love for Jamie and some of her class mates to help us out by answering some of the questions on our blog.

    We're keen to make you a documentary about our local area also - we'll keep you posted.

    Look forward to hearing from you!!
