Early Music Workshop

March 10th, 2020

Today the children were treated to a very informative and engaging workshop by Simon on Ireland’s ancient instruments. They traced instruments from 10,ooo years ago to St. Patrick’s arrival in Ireland, and explored the sounds from the first instruments our ancestors made and how they are related to instruments today.

Children engaged in a number of activities for Engineer’s week. Here the children in the junior room were challenged to design and make the tallest free standing structure using different materials.
