2nd Years visit Pearse Museum

At Pearse MuseumOn the 5th and 7th of December, 2 Oak and 2 Cedar travelled to the Pearse Museum in Rathfarnham. In Irish class, both groups had studied the story ‘An Gadaí’ by Pádraig Pearse. On reading this story, students saw a different side to the 1916 revolutionary. To learn more about him, students travelled to the Pearse Museum for a guided tour of the school which Pearse ran. Here, they learned about Pearse’s family, background, his love for the Irish language and the part he played in Irish Nationalism. Afterwards students explored the exhibition filled with artefacts and primary sources from the school and Pearse’s life. To finish the trip, student’s explored the lovely grounds of Pearse Park.
