Our two fourth classes had a fantastic day out today at the Hellfire Club and Massy’s Wood. Pupils learned about the geography, placenames and living things in the area on a walk up to the famous Hellfire Club building. Visiting the week before Hallowe’en didn’t phase our pupils as we talked about the history of the building and explored its dark interior. We even shared some of the scary stories from its past!
We were joined on the trip by a special visitor – Cava, Mr Looney’s friendly dog! Pupils took turns walking Cava and she was delighted with all the petting and a couple of treats!
Pupils finished up with some fun outdoor activities in Massy’s Wood on the lower slopes of the hill. Thanks to Ms O’Donovan and Ms Purcell for coming with Ms Higgins and Mr Looney and well done to all our pupils on their great behaviour.
