Description

A small booklet with some information on the history of the schools service and its aims and also the history of the National Museum of Wales. Talks about various publications and the help that it gives to schools. Service confined to secondary schools because of the number of schools in Wales. Talks about the staff and set up of the service but also talks about the aims being ‘to interest, to inspire, and to teach through things’. Talks about things that are inappropriate for the service to do e.g. broadcast on air and they actually say that they do not want to be ‘complementary to the curriculum’ but to offer something different to what schools are doing. Talks about intra-mural and extra-mural services and practical considerations and some publications on sale.
