Aidan Dockery – World War One & 1916

History, Mrs Brennan No Comments »

Pupils in Rang a Cúig and Rang a Sé had a visit from History expert Aidan Dockery. Aidan has one of the best collectioins of Irish stamps, coins, artefacts and commemorative booklets in the country. The pupils had been studying about World War 1 and Aidan took us on an unforgettable journey back in time. He recounted how his uncle Joe was a soldier during the war and was killed at the Battle of the Somme. He started the session with a chilling recitation of the poem The Box by Laschelles Ambercrombie on the danger of war and how it hurts everybody it comes into contact with. Aidan also gave a very insightful account into the lives of the signatories of the 1916 Rising.

Recently Fifth and Sixth Class pupils enjoyed a workshop facilitated by StreamScape.  They got up close to the many mini-beasts that live in our local River Bonet. Working as environmental scientists for the day the children were busy classifying, sorting and identifying the many species that live in our local waterways.  Great fun was had by the children who are looking forward to our follow-up fieldtrip to the River Bonet in Spring.
