Museum of Orange Visit

All pupils from 9Wa and 9Hs went to the Museum of Orange where they participated in a day of activities organised by the museum.  Pupils learnt about the origins of the Orange Order and participated  in a cultural/identity workshop.  Finally, all pupils received a guided tour of the Museum galleries and viewed artefacts relating to the Williamite and Jacobite period in Ireland, the 18th and 19th century events in Ireland, Orangeism around the world to modern day Northern Ireland. It was a very insightful day and will be very useful when we are learning about the Williamite Wars later this term.
