On Friday 7th February 2014 Ms Potter and a group of her 2nd, 3rd and 5th Year Classics students went to see a Roman comedy "The Swaggering Soldier" by Plautus. Classics students in Trinity put on this play which is on the Classics Junior Certificate curriculum.  The play is about an arrogant and vain solider called Pyrgopolynices who kidnaps a woman called Philocomasium.  Her boyfriend Pleusicles comes to rescue her and teaches the soldier a lesson in the process.  See student comments below:

Ciara Duffy and Luck Hackett (2nd Year students) really enjoyed it and found it very funny: 

"It was well produced with a very good script and plot.  The acting was excellent and the actors and actresses really got into their roles.  A lot of effort went into the costumes which really brought us back to Ancient Roman times.  The names of the characters were very long and hard to remember!  We didn't like the soldier, he was so vain and full of himself.  We found him irritating and were glad that he was punished at the end of the play which was very funny.  The audience was really gripped by the play. We are looking forward to studying it shortly".

Justyne Murnaghan and Elana Murphy (5th Year students) also really enjoyed the play: 

"It was great to see this play acted out after studying it for the Junior Certificate.  It was excellent and the acting was great.  It was our favourite topic on the Junior Cert course.  We remember acting out some of the scenes in class, ..I think the students in Trinity did a better job than we did though!  We are now studying Classics for the Leaving Certificate and love it.  It is our favourite subject.  We studied two Greek plays before Christmas: Euripides's "Medea" and Sophocles's "Oedipus the King". They were brilliant. They are tragedies and involve revenge, murder and incest so are vey different to Roman comedy!"

Well done to those students who represented our school last week at the BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition. Everyone did a great job!

A special word of congratulations to Saoirse O’Keeffe (2 Rookwood).  Saoirse’s project “Vitamin D and Calcium are Key Factors in the Prevention of Osteoporosis in Adults” achieved 1st Prize in the Individual section of the Junior Biological and Ecological category.  This is a great achievement and based on her work Saoirse has been invited to work with FleishmanHilliard, a leading PR agency, this summer in developing an App in relation to this topic.


Congratulations also to Sarah Penny-Howe & Louise Ryan (4th Year) who also reached the final stages of this prestigious competition.  Their project entitled “The Suspension of Neodymium Magnets by the Use of Electromagnets” generated a lot of interest by visitors to the exhibition, including that of the Tánaiste , Mr Eamon Gilmore.

On Thursday 12th December 2013 Ms Potter brought her 2nd and 3rd Year Classics classes to see an exhibition entitled “Life and Death in Ancient Rome” in the National Museum in Dublin city centre.

b2ap3_thumbnail_classicstrip02.jpg   b2ap3_thumbnail_classicstrip03.jpg  b2ap3_thumbnail_classicstrip04.jpg  b2ap3_thumbnail_classicstrip05.jpg  

We saw lots of artefacts from ancient Rome, including gold and silver coins, clay oil lamps, amphorae, urns and even an Etruscan sarcophagus! We also visited the Egyptian part of the museum and learned about how the Egyptians influenced Roman burials. We saw a mummy wrapped in a Roman shroud and we were fascinated by the mummified cat and bird we saw!

Seeing as we were in the National museum, we decided to check out the bog bodies! It was amazing to see how well preserved these bodies were.

Overall it was a brilliant day out and we learned a lot about life in Ancient Rome.

The 6th Year Classics class visited the Classics Museum in UCD earlier this month, and experienced a wide range of Greek and Roman artefacts.  The museum is one of the most impressive aspects of the School of Classics which is the largest centre of Classical Studies in Ireland. 

b2ap3_thumbnail_classicalstudies1.jpg          b2ap3_thumbnail_classicalstudies2.jpg         

In line with our study of Greek sculpture, we saw replicas of some of the sculptures we had studied in class, such as the Kritios Boy, an Early Classical sculpture that 6th Year Classics students are all too familiar with!  The museum curator, Dr. Joanna Day, showed us collections of Greek vases, sculptures, and Greek and Roman coins, as well as a remarkable stone sarcophagus, and many tombstones – we saw one tombstone belonging to a thirty year old, and one belonging to a four year old, erected by a man for his “unfortunate granddaughter”!

The best part of the visit was when we sat down to handle some of the artefacts.  Among the objects we looked at were a terracotta oil lamp, one of the first versions of money from the ancient world, and a small lekithos, which was an oil flask (we learned that almost every container from ancient Greece most likely held oil!).  The visit was extremely interesting for us, as we got to bring our knowledge of the Classical world and apply it to the remnants we are left with today.  It was a chance to get out of the classroom and see what's in our textbooks in real life!
