Battle of Faughart 700 year Anniversary

In recognition of the 700 year anniversary of the Battle of Faughart and the death of Edward De Bruce, 5th and 6th class pupils researched the topic and created powerpoints which they presented to their class.

The pupils developed their 21st century skills by researching and collaborating together online to create interactive projects and really enjoyed using their office 365 accounts in school and at home.
