In Ms Ward’s 6th class we have been learning all about local history this month. We looked at old maps, investigated the history of local place names and read an interview with an old Saggart resident, Bertha Hinch. We compared life in Saggart 100 years ago to life in Saggart nowadays.
We then went for a walk around Saggart, visiting some areas of historic interest like the old mill, the church and the graveyard, where we searched for the grave of Bertha’s parents.
Back in class we thought about what hashtags would go well with our photos from our local history walk. #saggart #localhistory #historywalk #graveyard #berthahinch #6thclass #papermill #millroad #millrace #stmarysnationalschoolsaggart
