On Thursday December 6, Crumlin Integrated College pupils took part in their second shared lesson of 2018-19. Year nine pupils welcomed Primary six pupils from Crumlin Integrated Primary, Gaelscoil Ghleann Darach and St. Joseph’s for a very interesting and informative talk by local historian, Rodney Mayers. The pupils were shown pictures of Crumlin long ago and couldn’t quite believe there was a cinema where the Leisure Centre now stands, keep tuned for a possible campaign. Rodney brought some old artefacts for the children to examine, pupils were taken aback by the size of the old mobile phones. The staff at the College and the partnership schools would like to sincerely thank Mr Rodney Mayers for his continued support for the project and for passing on a wealth of invaluable knowledge to our young people about the good old days in their local hometown, Crumlin.
On the same morning last week, Year eight pupils walked to Crumlin Integrated College, with their partners in St Jospeh’s Primary School, to investigate the lifecycle of the salmon. The children produced beautiful display work that can be viewed during the school open night in January. Primary five and Year eight pupils are eagerly awaiting the arrival of their salmon eggs, due to take place in January. The eggs will hatch under our watchful eye in the classroom before being released in the Camlin River that runs through the Glen before Easter.
