Star of the silver screen!
Sir Ernest Shackleton, as is widely known, was educated at Dulwich College; so it is fitting that the great explorer is being used by the College in an educational package for the students of today. Hal Howe, also a former pupil of Dulwich College, was commissioned to produce a short film telling the story of Shackleton and the James Caird. This is being offered to local primary schools, along with a handbook for teachers and a pupil workbook, while school visits are on pause. The study of Shackleton and his heroic feats is part of the KS2 curriculum and the James Caird Society welcomes and supports this educational initiative which brings Sir Ernest’s qualities of leadership to life in such an inspirational way.
The film, which lasts about 12 minutes, can be viewed here.
