Green schools "Leave No Trace" workshop

29/05/2017 18:22

On Friday 26th May, Ruth Van Rys from Ecoschools Northern Ireland visited us to deliver a workshop entitled "Leave No Trace". This workshop focussed on reducing litter and waste, and ensuring that we leave no trace behind us when we explore our outdoor environment, which reinforces all the work we are doing in the school to achieve our Green Schools flag for litter and waste.

After a presentation and quiz, we went on a field trip. On this trip, we visited the original site of the Killycluggin stone (ring fort) behind the school, where we learned about the history of the stone and its excavation. We then participated in a number of activites including a scavenger hunt, tree and plant identification, tree and leaf rubbings, colour palette matching and pencil drawings. We also visited the replica stone at Killycluggin crossroads, and got an impromptu history lesson about the stone from Tony and Martina Bannon! We found out that Tony's grandfather, Willie, owned the land where the Killycluggin stone was discovered.

Bawnboy Workhouse 1916 Commemorative Garden - official opening

14/05/2017 23:16

We attended the opening ceremony of the 1916 Commemorative Garden at Bawnboy workhouse on Friday 12th May. Five schools in the locality were invited by the Bawnboy Workhouse committee to perform for an audience outside the workhouse.  We performed the song 'Grace' and acted out a scene from the 1916 Rising. Congratulations to the committee for organising a very successful commemoration and for their tireless work to preserve the workhouse. We are learning all about workhouses in history lessons in school presently and it was a fantastic opportunity to be involved in this event at this hugely important historical site. Local historian and committee secretary, Dympna Headen, will visit our school over the coming weeks to give us a more in-depth knowledge of the workhouse and famine times in our locality.















All the photos from the day are uploaded to the Gallery.
