St Matthews Primary School in Cambridge is currently undergoing an ambitious regeneration programme to cater for increasing numbers of young people wanting to attend the school. public works together with Cambridge based performing arts company 30 Bird Productions and Dr. Luke Skinner, research fellow at the Royal Society University are working with the school on MUD a project which tries to capture the moments of this recent development and unearth the heritage of the school and local area to be celebrated by future generations of staff, pupils and the wider community.
The project will collect oral stories and memories that go beyond the school itself, which will travel through the city of Cambridge and beyond. We want to hear from present and former pupils, teaching and non-teaching staff and the local community. We need your memories and stories, people's photographs, objects and anything that contributes to a history of the school and immediate area. This will translate into a fantastic resource for the school and the local area.'
