Young people learned about the historical interaction between the British Empire under Queen Victoria and the Punjab Province. They traced their personal heritage by interviewing their Grandparents and family elders, exploring the paths they took in reaching Britain and their experiences of integrating into their new country and culture.
Young people learned about the historical interaction between the British Empire under Queen Victoria and the Punjab Province. They traced their personal heritage by interviewing their Grandparents and family elders, exploring the paths they took in reaching Britain and their experiences of integrating into their new country and culture. This project encouraged the young people to interact and learn from one another. Young people gained a greater appreciation for the life experiences of their elders, whilst the elders gained a sense of satisfaction of being able to pass on their knowledge and stories to young people. Most members of the Sikh community live in an extended family or maintain strong family links. However understanding between the elder members and young people is limited due to cultural and linguistic handicaps. The project helped inter generational cohesion within the family between two polarised elements of the modern family. The project culminated in an exhibition displaying posters and storyboards of the young people’s findings.
