Explore Your Local Heritage Award

June 13, 2022 @ 1:30 pm - 2:00 pm

This creative annual classroom-based competition open to all Kerry primary schools. Explore Your Local Heritage is a creative collaboration of Kerry Archaeological & Historical Society, Kerry County Museum and Kerry County Council. It is kindly supported by The Education Centre Tralee and Heritage in Schools. It encourages schools to explore their local heritage and to share their discoveries. The competition is based on two core principles: Firstly, that participating schools creatively explore the rich heritage of their locality. Secondly, that each school is committed to a child-led approach, so that pupils are part of the decision-making process from the start. Following schools were short-listed this year: Blennerville NS (Antarctic Explorer Tom Crean), Kilcummin NS (The development of education in Kilcummin), Kilmoyley NS (Returning to the source for inspiration), Spa NS (Oyster Fishing in Fenit) and Tulloha NS (The Priest’s Leap). Our three adjudicators Maria Walsh (Heritage Council), Isabel Bennett (KAHS) and Terry O’Sullivan (Education Centre Tralee) declared Kilcummin NS to be this year’s winner!
