Somme Heritage Centre visit

All Year Ten pupils enjoyed a History visit to the Somme Heritage Centre in Newtownards.  They toured a reconstruction of a trench system and tried on uniforms from the First World War.  They also learned about the weapons used in World War One and thought about the impact of the Great War, right up to the present day.  Pupils will be able to use this useful information when preparing for the Great War section of their Junior Certificate exam.
