Pottery Workshop-Doolin Cave

May 13th, 2015

Today, children from the senior classroom got the opportunity to go to Doolin Cave for a pottery class. The theme of the event was to create fairies and troglodytes {cave characters} for the nature trail at Doolin Cave. Every pupil will have their name and the date noted and it will be placed on the nature trail as a memento with their fairies and troglodytes when they are ready.

Following our pottery workshop, the children got a tour of the cave!

Just amazing!!!

Many thanks to all the staff at Doolin Cave.
