The Marvell College Heritage Day
8th February 2019
The Marvell College hosted its first Heritage Day on the 5th February 2019. Opening at 10 o’clock in front of Cleveland House, on Valiant Drive, one of three high rise flats named after the three trawlers lost in 1968. The ceremony remembered all those lost at sea or through work on the docks.
The Marvell College then invited the local community to the school at 11 o’clock for a celebration of Hull, the port city with stories from Rob Bell’s Snow in the Hold and songs from local legend Mick McGarry. As part of the Heritage Day pupils in Year 7 took part in the Roots, Heritage and Future activities with the History Troupe.
The purpose of the heritage Day is to remember the 10,000+ lost at sea from 1880 until 1975 from the port of Hull. Pupils developed an understanding of their roots and the roots of the city as a port and how this continues to develop into their futures.
