We make learning enjoyable
Dublin was the destination of the school tour this year. We donned our Viking helmets and boarded a World War II amphibious vehicle. Our Viking guide delivered a very entertaining and engaging commentary and ensured we all thoroughly enjoyed our tour around the main sights of Dublin City - by land and water - Trinity College, Google headquarters, Christ Church Cathedral, the apartment block where Edward resided, Georgian Dublin and Government buildings, to name but a few. It was a great way for the students to learn about the sites of Dublin.
The Natural History Museum also known as The Dead Zoo was opened by Dr David Livingstone in 1857. Pupils were enthralled with the variety of mammals, birds, fish and insects display. The giant Irish deer, an elephant, basking shark and a giraffe were popular favourites.
The National Art Gallery - Catríona Moran, artist and parent, had a chat with the pupils before we embarked on our tour of the National Art Gallery. Our expert guide kept the children’s interest as we visited the various rooms in the National Art Gallery. The pupils loved the biblical paintings, Picasso paintings and the Seán Scully exhibition.
