Artefacts PicFollowing the success of our recent Heritage Week where children visited a Mini Museum filled mostly with artefacts on loan from members of staff, we are relaunching our History Handling Collection.

As Powerstown Educate Together advocates hands-on active learning we are hoping increase our History Handling Collection of items which might assist with our teaching and learning about the past. The handling collection, which was launched in 2015 comprises artefacts – either real or replica – from a range of historical periods from wrought iron cooking pots to vinyl records from the 1960s.

If you would like to donate any historical items to our handling collection, please note the ownership of the item will be transferred to the school and we have drawn up an agreement to this effect which we will be asking donors to sign. So if you are having a spring clean and come across historical or cultural items that you no longer want or need but think might interest the school, please arrange to speak with Aoife after school or drop her an email on
