Transition Year Cultra Trip

On Tuesday the 27 September Form 4 pupils went to the Ulster Folk and Transport museum in Cultra, County Down.  We met in the train station at 8.45am and took the train to Belfast Central, followed by a connecting train to Cultra.  From here we walked to the Folk museum.  We were put into teams and given a worksheet to be completed.  We began by looking around the buildings in the re-modelled town, such as the tea room, picture house, bank, post office and printers.  Many of us bought sweets in the sweet shop before we left.  After the town, we entered the rural area and looked around old fashioned houses and businesses including a forge and a mill.  Once finished at the Folk museum we went to the Transport museum where there were hundreds of cars, train carriages and buses.  There was also a Titanic exhibition containing recovered artefacts from the sunken ship.  We finished in the Land, Sea and Air museum after looking at bikes, boats and planes.  We arrived home to Connolly Station hungry and tired but having had an educational and worthwhile day.  Thank you to the teachers for organising it.
