13/06/2014 HISTORY TRIP FOR LORETO COLLEGE STUDENTS

All Year 9 students from Loreto College Coleraine spent Wednesday 11th June visiting Derry, exploring the City Walls and gaining a real life awareness of the Siege of Derry.

In the course of the day, the students had a guided tour of the historic Walls of Derry.  They also visited the Tower Museum, where they visited the Story of Derry exhibition.

Mr Bob Murphy, Head of History at Loreto, who co-ordinated the visit, commented that it had afforded the students an ideal opportunity to bring their studies to life, gaining a sense of their own heritage and the part that the historical events which they had studied had played in today’s landscape.
