Cromore School Outing

Those who remember any school trips they went on during their time in education will remember the excitement that accompanied the promise of getting out from the school environment. Some fortunate pupils from Cromore School went on one such trip as noted in the school’s log book for the 14th July 1898.

There was no opening of the School today as a number of the children were taken to Stornoway in a boat, were shown round the Castle and grounds, harbour, streets in the hope that their intelligence may be broadened and that the teaching of object lessons and the reference in their English reading books may be more easily understood.”

Thinking back to my own school trips in while in Airidhantuim Primary, those who weren’t lucky enough to be going stayed behind and got on with their work – the school certainly didn’t remain closed like Cromore did that day!
