JCT History Symposium

Zara Griffin and Rory McPherson represent the student voice

On Saturday 11 May the JCT History Team held a History Symposium in Collins Barracks Museum.   Part of the day was a panel discussion on the experience of history.

First Year students Rory Mc Pherson and Zara Griffin represented the student voice (pictured here with SAC Head of History, Ms McGrane). 

The panel was chaired by Turtle Bunbury and included many well-known historians. There were roughly fifty  teachers in attendance from schools all over Ireland.   


Zara and Rory were asked a number of questions about their experience of the new junior cycle course so far. They were confident and well-articulated in the way they both spoke throughout the hour long discussion. All those present in the room were very impressed with our two First Years!
