On Thursday 1st February we welcomed Grandparents and parents to school to celebrate Grandparents Day. We started off with a little prayer service conducted by Fr. Danny  in which we were were thankful for our grandparents and then we went back to our classrooms to celebrate 50 years of Urhan School on its present site.

Bronze Art

Marie Brett from the Heritage in School scheme came to Urhan on Thursday 16th November. She showed us some artefacts from the Bronze Age and we explored how important gold was in Ireland during that time. We each made a replica of some Bronze Age jewellery using an embossing and etching technique on copper and aluminium foil.

You can see some of our work below.
