Classical Studies Events:
It has been a very eventful and enjoyable few months for Classics students in Loreto Foxrock! On 12th January, Mr Garland and I brought the Transition Year Classics class to Milano’s for lunch to taste modern Italian food as part of a comparative study. Students had studied Ancient Roman food in class and were eager to equate modern Italian cuisine to its more ancient form. On 20th February, Mr Garland also brought his Transition Year Class to the Classics Museum in U.C.D. The Transition Year students will enter the U.C.D run “design a vase” competition and this outing was an excellent way for students to examine ancient artwork in person.
On 2nd March, I brought some students to a Classics Speech Contest in Trinity. A great team of supporters came along to cheer them on! On 19th March, Mr Garland brought a group of 5th & 6th Year students to compete in the “Ides of March” Classics Quiz in Mount Anville. On 25th March, 2nd Year Classics students attended a Classics Fun Day in Trinity. On 27th March, Mr Suarez and I brought a group of 5th Year students on a walking tour of town. We looked at buildings, such as Trinity, which have been influenced by Ancient Greek and Roman Architecture. To top it all off some 5th & 6th Year students came on the Home Economics and Classics trip to Italy!
