5th Class Fieldtrip

Students from the three fifth classes, along with Mr. Toner, Ms. Perkins, Ms. Hughes, Catherine, Mr. Nelson, Mr. O’Connor and Carol went on their history field trip. They visited the historic Battle of the Boyne visitor centre in Oldbridge House. Students got the chance to see where the battle took place, explore the gardens and the beautiful grounds of Oldbridge House, take part in a quiz and they watched videos and lazer shows depicting the battle. They even got to see real-life artefacts of weapons that were used during the battle. As you can see from the photographs below, an enjoyable day was had by all, so much so that students are now recreating the Battle of the Boyne with figurines in the classroom. Many thanks to Mr. Toner for organising this brilliant trip.
