Yr 9 Historians visit Ranfurly House, Arts & Visitor Centre

Year 9 pupils participated in a visit to the Ranfurly House Visitor Centre in Dungannon earlier this month, in conjunction with their studies on the Plantations of Ulster. This brought the subject to life for the pupils and allowed them to engage in a visual and interactive way with what we had been learning in the classroom.

They groups enjoyed a tour of the Visitors Centre, question time on the history of the Plantations, the Flight of the Earls and Hugh O’Neill, as well as the highlight, a walk onto the Hill of the O’Neill in the sunshine to see the remains of the fort that stood there 400 years ago.

Some pupils enjoyed the trip so much that they have been back already for a picnic and to take in the views from the top of the hill!
