P6 get a Titanic visit from local author, courtesy of CREDNI

This week, children from Primary 6 were visited by Susie Miller, a well known local author of such novels as “The 2 Pennies”.  Susie is an active member of the Titanic Society and has personal and professional links with the great ship.  She helped the children in a workshop, see how writers can meld fact and fiction together in a literary work.  The programme was sponsored through funds secured by school, along with Glenann Primary School in Cushendall, from the Government’s Community Relations, Equality and Diversity Northern Ireland Policy.  We hope to continue with learning opportunities throughout this academic year, including a residential visit to the Ulster American Folk Park in Omagh, to continue the studies of Titanic in this the 2012 100th Anniversary year of the tragic sinking.
