As part of their history course, 10A visited the Somme Heritage Centre today, to learn more about the Irish contribution in World War One.

Pupils toured the exhibition and a reconstruction of a trench. They also had the chance to handle weapons used 100 years ago by the men of the 36th (Ulster)and 16th (Irish)Divisions.

The remainder of the Year 10 classes will visit the Somme Centre on Wednesday (10B and 10E) and Thursday (10C and 10D).
