On Wednesday 9th November, Mr Collins P7 class along with Miss Herrons, went on a school trip to the Argory based in Moy beside the River Blackwater. After the pupils had got a snack on arrival, they got dressed up in authentic Victorian clothes and were taken on a tour of the Argory house. They were able to see the room the ladys maid would have occupied, the dining room, the room belonging to the lady of the house and the room the master would have had as a child. The class was then taken on a tour of the garden and even made paper pots where they planted acorns. After a quick spot of lunch the class tried their hands at writing with ink pens to apply for positions at the Argory that included a young ladys maid, valet, garden hand and housemaid. Overall the class had a great day seeing the Victorian era come to life!
Mr Collins Primary 6 class visited the Shannaghmore Outdoor Education Centre for a class trip, where they were able to stay for three days and two nights. Set in a fifty acre site of beautiful gardens, woodland and mountainside the class had great fun being involved in activities that included wet rock bouldering, canoeing, an obstacle course and lots of exploring. Have a look!
