The History Department of St. Paul’s College are presently constructing this website to facilitate the study and investigation of History both for curricular & cross-curricular purposes. In the coming weeks and months, we will be uploading various notes, PowerPoint Presentations, links, videos and more.The main body of the website will be divided as per the banner above – ‘Welcome’, ‘Junior Certificate History’, ‘Leaving Certificate History’ etc. In these sections, students will find and have a permanent resource of materials to aid their respective courses of study.In the footer sections of this site, we have created three categories of links – ‘Links’, ‘Research’ & ‘History of Oratory’. These provide the direct, necessary primary & secondary sources required for information & research.
In the menu on the left side of the screen, under ‘Aspects of History – 4th Year Projects’, one can find an extensive resource of 4th Year projects, pages and submissions. Other students outside of 4th Year will also be involved throughout the website and will be identified in their submissions.
Aims & Objectives
The utility of this website is to provide, maintain and progressively update a ‘platform’ for student activity, research and involvement. Much of this website is due to the students’ own creativity, original ideas & opinions. Their work, in conjunction with the History teachers of St. Paul’s College, will form a permanent platform for both the prescribed curricula (Junior Certificate, Transition Year & Leaving Certificate) and broader, more discrete aspects of historical study, appreciation and commentary.
Other students who make submissions on this website will be clearly identified at the top of each page and/or on the material they have submitted independently or as a group.
Please note on left-side menu a section entitled ‘Society of St. Vincent de Paul’. As our school is in the ethos of, and backed by the Vincentian Order, we will be producing an extensive project on the history of St. Paul’s, the Vincentian Order and its place in educational & social history.
