Faye Richardson , 2nd Year (Rookwood), was asked to present with her group the explorations of Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan to her history classmates. Faye ingeniously decided to peer teach her class mates about circumnavigation by making a rounded cake which represented the globe. Suffice to say, the class were very happy with her teaching methods.

On Friday 26th September Mr Delahunty and Mr Fallon brought 5th Year history students, and some lucky 2nd Year students, to attend a workshop entitled, ‘Become a Digital Historian’ which was run by CNGL (The Centre for Global Intelligent Content) in conjunction with the Discover Research Dublin Festival at Trinity College Dublin.

The event was both entertaining and informative. Our students had the opportunity to interact with the latest digital research techniques. They applied these techniques to explore and interpret historical documents relating to events from the 1916 Rising. The students used advanced personalisation technology to weave a personalised journey. CNGL researchers explained how technology can be used as a tool for exploration and described the different techniques used.

We need your items of historical interest!

Loreto Foxrock History week takes place from Monday 6th - Friday 10th October.  As part of the weeklong celebration of history, a Loreto History Museum, curated for and by the students, will take place in the school library.  We are asking all students and staff to scour your homes and send in any items of historical interest you have which could contribute to our museum.  Items will be supervised at all times, and we ask you indicate to us if an item is particularly fragile.

This proved very popular with students last year, and we hope to make this year’s museum event an even better one.  We are looking for a very diverse range of items for display, and would welcome anything that has some sort of historical resonance.  We are particularly interested this year in any documents/ items associated with World War One.
