Calf and the Cuckoo Workshop

The senior room had a fantastic workshop with Karen from Burren Beo as part of the ‘Calf and the Cuckoo’ program on Place, Geology, Archaeology, and People.

They looked at the history and geography of The Burren, participated in many different group activities, conducted some investigations and (tasty) excavations!

Karen will be back next year for the second workshop and we look forward to learning more from her in the new year.
