As part of a North/ South project by PDST, the students of 2CN completed a film/ebook about the life of a 1916 Good Counsel College student. (see links below)
The boys were broken up into 6 teams. The winning ebook from these 6 teams will be invited to a showcase in Dublin on May 18th 2016.
What this means for each subject?
With the permission of the relevant teachers, students for any non-exam subject work on the project or these teachers may wish to allow the students to work on the project in their classes with their project packs kept in Resource Room 3)
Teachers of exam subjects can incorporate elements of the project into their teaching as follows:
English: imagine and write diary entry/letter from 1916, camera angles etc
