Belfast provided our Sixth Form Sociology students with a weekend of cultural experiences, visiting Crumlin Road Gaol along with the Titanic Museum which educated all those involved in two of Belfast’s most historical impacts of society.
It was shocking to think that Crumlin Road Gaol still had prisoners less than 30 years ago as the conditions were quite horrific and all of us were moved by the reality of walking through the execution chamber that was used as recently as 1971.
Whilst most people are familiar with the tragic Titanic story, the Museum exhibited artifacts which cannot be seen anywhere else in the world. The weekend was enjoyed by staff and students alike and hopefully will be remembered by the students for many years to years to come.
