In April 2002, 4 pupils (Deborah Leask. Gilbert Hunter,
Sherrell Moncrieff and Alistair Morgan) and 2 teachers (Moira Dobson and
Colin Nicol), pictured above, from Scalloway Junior High School took part in a memorial
service in Norway to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Telavåg tragedy
The pupils had been invited to lay a wreath at the Telavåg memorial on
behalf of the Scalloway Community.
The school party's visit to Norway was the culmination of a 3 year
European partnership project under the Comenius Scheme.
While in Norway the group made a presentation of the Shetland Bus website
on CD-Rom to pupils in Sund Ungdomsskule which is one of the partner schools
in the project.
The group also visited the North Sea Traffic Museum where they attended a
conference on the theme of children in war.
