The Second World War

Won the War

During the Second World War, many children from Glasgow and in particular Clyde Bank, which suffered extensive bombing, were evacuated to Glendaruel and Colintraive. Big Houses Like Southhall, Dunans and Ormidale gave a home to young city children.

Kilmodan children explored what it must have been like to be ‘evacuated’, the feelings of the children as they left their homes and parents to go and live in a strange rural place, with people they don’t know.

The school created an exhibition of letters and role play interviews, putting themselves into the shoes of the evacuee.
