4th Class Francis Street School
Throughout the month of October, 4th Class celebrated Black History Month. We celebrated inspirational people such as Martin Luther King Jr, Jackie Robinson, Rosa Parks, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Matthew Henson, Stormzy, and Kobe Bryant. We researched, asked questions and took part in fantastic discussions in relation to this topic. Students from Trinity College gave us lessons on inspirational people, the footballer Sean Gannon who plays for Dundalk in the league of Irish Premier Division spoke to us about racism in football all via Zoom. As a class, we decided that we want to encourage diversity and inclusivity in our classroom as much as possible so that everyone feels that they belong.
