Cloghroe National School students remember 1916

Skydome. 4th, 5th and 6th class students recently had the opportunity to interact with the planets, stars and galaxies when the ‘Skydome Mobile Planetarium’ visited the school. With the night sky and the solar system projected onto the roof of the 360 degree dome, the children’s understanding of astronomy was furthered deepened. It was both an educational and enjoyable experience!
