ATECI 1916 History Project

The Network of Education Centres has come together to propose a series of local history related activities/initiatives/projects which to celebrate The Decade of Commemoration will assist principals/teachers/students in focusing on the celebrations and to engage in a proactive sense in celebrating this significant time within their own school setting.

The initiative is aimed at supporting schools in their preparation for the Proclamation Day on March 15th 2016. The materials can also be used as part of the Schools’ Collection 1916 Project, and the 1916 Ancestry Project. All of the materials prepared can be used as part of the 1916 Celebrations next March, in each participating primary school. We have decided to run this initiative now, so that schools can begin to prepare early for this momentous historical occasion and also to allow schools to see what materials they have for display purposes on March 15th 2016. In addition to the above we are also holding a series of workshops in our Education Centre to support teachers in this initiative. Details of these workshops will be forwarded to each school. 

The aim of this year’s 1916 initiative is to encourage students to research, reflect, find and observe history in their own local area. For the purposes of ensuring a broad themed approach to local history, we have divided the theme into four areas.

Please see attached details for primary and post-primary schools.
