6th Class held a Cake Sale to raise much needed funds for the people of the Philippines. Parents and children were very busy baking buns and all sorts of treats. We all had a great day at the cake sale and the class raised €740. Well done to 6th class. Amazing amount of money raised.
We received a letter from UNICEF today thanking us for our efforts. Open it and see…..
Some of the teachers look very pleased with their purchases…
The Broighter Hoard
We went to the Tower Museum in Derry to view the Broighter Gold from the Celtic era. We were learning about the Celts in history before Halloween. The items were found in a field in Broighter in Limavady in 1896. We went up to see the items in a very dark room. It had to be that dark to preserve them. There was very high security also. The items that were on display were
the Torc which high up Celts would have worn around their necks,
the Bowl which is a small cauldron like object but no one knows exactly what it was for,
the Necklaces which were two necklaces made out of gold wire and
the Bar Torcs which were single twisted bars of gold.
It was found when two farmers were double ploughing the fields. They then sold it to a jewellers in Derry for £200 and then it was later sold on for £600. It was later given to the British Museum but the National Museum of Ireland claimed it after. It is worth 4 and a half million. Unfortunately we could not see the boat as it was too fragile to travel up from Dublin. Our tour guide was called Fiona and she was very nice.We enjoyed our day and we got to do some fun activities based on the hoard.
Application forms available on the day.
