JCSP Trip to Print Museum & EPIC

Category : Post Primary

We went to The National Print Museum as part of our JCSP Newsletter project. We had a tour guide, her name is Christine. The tour was very interesting. We learnt all about how printing works. Printing was first developed in 1439 when a German goldsmith Johanne Gutenburg invented the type letter. We also learnt about the printing process over the years, including how the 1916 proclamation was printed. This was really interesting, there wasn’t enough letters to print the whole Proclamation and the letter P was made into a letter R using sealing wax. The letter O was made into a C by cutting out a part of the letter O. We really enjoyed the Print Museum. We got to make our own printed poster using the type cast letters, this was great fun. The posters were “wanted” posters. Then we went to Milano restaurant where we had delicious pizzas. After that, we visited the EPIC Museum, the lrish Emigration museum. This museum is a fully digital museum. lt is interactive, enlightening and visually beautiful. It tells the captivating story of a small island (Ireland) with a big impact on the world. Overall we had a fantastic and interesting day. Thank you to our teachers Ms.Owens and Ms.McFarlane.
