History Behind The Scenes

Tutor: Rob McGeehan   

Venue: Shalom House, Booval

Time: Tuesday 10.00am – 11.30am


Well, that’s what we call ourselves because essentially that is the guiding principal of what we seek to present/understand. And a grand journey it is, as anyone who attends our “sessions” can tell you.

The idea is for class members (very democratic!) to present a history topic/event that is little known, even controversial, in whatever method they feel comfortable-, DVD, lecture or round table discussion etc.

Oh! Yes! Morning tea is always available after presentation
