Rooms 30 and 35 Learn about WW1 Campbell Soldier, Robert McConnell.

11th Jan 2018

Rooms 30 and 35 were lucky to have the opportunity to learn about Robert McConnell, a former Campbell College pupil, who fought and died in World War 1. We learned so much about his life as a pupil at Campbell College and as a soldier Mesopatamia . Through drama, freeze frames, tableaux and evidence investigations, the pupils built up an amazing picture of the life of local heroes who gave their life to fight for King and country. A huge thank you to Michelle from Queen's University and Mary and Chris, two local actors who brought the story of Robert McConnell to life for us all.
