Welcome to Exploring Sligo
||'Exploring Sligo, a study of Sligo's
Heritage' is a schools heritage and ICT project, which seeks to promote
high levels of awareness and understanding of local heritage amongst
participants. The project, initiated by Sligo Education Centre, ran in 6 County Sligo primary schools during 2010 and was coordinated by
local archaeologist Joyce Enright and staff from the Education Centre.
The project was supported by funding from the Centre and from the Heritage Council.
involved had a workshop facilitated by Joyce, followed by visits
to the local Heritage sites. Based on these visits the pupils
documented their experiences in writing, photography, and
art, and some in film and also collated stories about the sites.
The website is designed using all the pupils own work based on
their learning. It is hoped that it will be a resource to other
local children, families and schools, but also that it will be a
resource for any tourists who may wish to visit Sligo.
We wish to share our discoveries with you as you
explore this website.
