On 7th February P7H visited the Titanic Centre at Queen’s Island in Belfast. We had a fabulous day and enjoyed our guided ‘Ship of Dreams’ tour before visiting the SS Nomadic, the last surviving ship owned by the White Star Line. The Nomadic was Titanic’s tender, bringing passengers from the port of Cherbourg out to join her before the ship’s ill fated maiden voyage.
P7 pupils welcomed Rachel from Young enterprise to Hardy on the 6th February. They investigated the importing and exporting of goods between countries before playing the ‘Trading Game’. Pupils thoroughly enjoyed this activity and through it developing the skills of team work and cooperation.
