Schools Then and Now - Hedge Schools

Some schools didn't have a building. Classes were held under hedges. It didn't cost a lot to go to one of these schools.

Most children in Ireland in the 1700s and 1800s went to a Hedge School.

What did the children learn? What was their teacher like? What happened if it was raining?

Old Buildings

Bray is an old town. We are surrounded by many old buildings. These we pass every day on the way to and from school - often without noticing their wealth of detail or appreciating the work that went in to building them.

Here are some pictures of buildings near our school. Look out for them.
