Students of 1 Tain and 1 Oriel enjoyed some detective work, acting as historians last week. Students had to figure out what the object from the past was, who would have used it and how old it was. We had some great answers!
Entwined Histories 10
In 2020, the 2nd year history students were fortunate enough to participate in the Entwined Histories programme. The aim of the programme is to highlight and remember important events of our shared history. By working with other schools, both north and south of the border, the students got an opportunity to explore different viewpoints on a shared past. The students from Bush Post Primary created a short film on The Treaty of Versailles 1919. Please skip onto 16.55 from the video to watch their take on the Treaty of Versailles.
First Year Student Successful in 'Graphics' Good Design in Everyday Life' Exhibition
We had a First Year student successful in having their 'Graphics' Good Design in Everyday Life' Exhibition.
Only 20-30 students nationwide work will be displayed on a virtual Exhibition (Due to Covid).
Our very own B. Kelly (1 Willville) was successful this year, making it two year's in a row one of our student's have been successful; following on from Maia Davidson last year.
Her design was based on her love for music during the recent lockdown and incorporated her love for graphics into her design by drawing precisely her musical notebooks after topics were covered in class this year.
We in the Technology department are delighted for her and hope to continue this trend again next year.
