Art meets History

Art meets History
1st & 5th Class
Thursday, November 8, 2018 (All day)

First class and Fifth class joined forces today to go and view the special sculpture unveiled in St Stephen's Green at the weekend. The sculpture, named 'The Hauntings Soldier', represents a soldier returned from WW1 battle weary and forlorn. The piece, made from scrap metal fascinated the girls as they worked in teams trying to identify as many recognisable objects as possible. It was created by Slovakian artist Martin Galbavy and constructed by Chris Hannam at Dorset Forge and Fabrication in 2017. Standing more than six meters tall the children had so much to discuss and thoroughly enjoyed the short excursion.
