School Tours of a Gibraltar Model Soldier Society Exhibition at City Hall – 570/2022

By August 16, 2022 No Comments

His Worship the Mayor, Mr. Christian Santos GMD hosted an exhibition by the Gibraltar Model Soldier Society at City Hall to celebrate our Gibraltarian identity, culture and history.

The exhibition run from mid-April to the beginning of July to coincide with the end of the school term for the summer break. Each week a class of students from St Bernard’s Upper Primary School would visit and experience a tour and accompanying talk by a volunteer from the Gibraltar Model Soldier Society.

The focus of the exhibition was to promote and teach the younger generations about our local military history from the Great Siege to present day.

Whenever available, His Worship would surprise the children by meeting them after the tour and answered all their questions about his role as Mayor and about the history of City Hall.

As Patron of the Gibraltar Model Soldier Society, His Worship was delighted to support them in this exhibition. This project was especially important for His Worship as he is extremely keen for our youth to learn about Gibraltar’s history.
