A2 History department trip to Dublin

On Friday 12th February Grosvenor’s History department conducted a highly worthwhile trip to Dublin when its A2 students embarked upon the city to visit sites and landmarks of significance to them in their A2 studies.

The trip, supervised on the day by Head of History Mr Tomkins, along with Mrs Peel - who also organised the excursion, saw the GGS contingent arrive in Dublin at 9.30am, from where they enjoyed a walking tour around the city, visiting and receiving important information about various sites of relevant historical importance, including St. Stephen's Green, Dublin Castle and the General Post Office.

Following this the pupils then travelled to the National Museum of Ireland to view the Irish Military history section, before making their way to Glasnevin Cemetery, where a tour guide informed them about many of Ireland's most prolific politicians and influential people, whilst visiting their graves.

The trip proved extremely interesting and insightful, and will definitely have helped the pupils’ understanding in relation to the Irish history section of their A2 course. Many thanks to Mrs Peel for organsising the trip, as well as Mr Tomkins for his presence on the day; without this the pupils would not have been able to benefit as they did from the informative and educational visit.
