The exhibitors dip into their own childhood and show today’s children items that recall a very different way of life. The programme has proven really successful in many primary schools around the Country with both students and exhibitors benefiting hugely from the opportunity to get together and share stories as well as creating a unique learning experience for the children.
The project can work equally well in a nursing home setting, using specific items for a smaller display where the exhibition of the artifacts provides a pleasant nostalgic experience to residents. It is extremely useful in involving all residents in a communal social experience and in particular quieter residents or even those suffering with dementia come to life when engaged with the exhibition.
Bournea Reaching Out are exhibiting to Scoil Mhuire Lismackin pupils only, during the day between 12pm to 3pm.
We are opening it to adults and the public in the evening at 7pm with an admission fee of €5 to help go towards the purchasing of a defibrillator for the parish.
Location: Lismackin Halll
All are welcome.
