History Research Group at the official launch of ‘Tha Kingdom O’ Mourne’

2nd Oct 2017

On Monday night, the History Research Group was invited to the official launch of ‘Tha Kingdom O’ Mourne’ book in Reivers House. Last year the pupils spent many hours after school researching the story of the Ulster-Scots of Mourne and some of their findings have been included in the new publication. James Verner and Alex Stevenson were asked to make a brief presentation to the packed audience about the project, explaining how it has enabled them to develop many skills and improve their understanding of the local area. Jayne Hanna, Hannah Cousins and Ellie McAtee recited one of the poems from the book.

This is the second time this year that research produced by the History Research Group has been published in a book. We are very proud of our pupils and all of the hard work they have put in! KHS would like to take this opportunity to thank the Schomberg Society for inviting us to take part in the project.

Well done!!
