Primary 7 were privileged today to welcome Mr Angus Waddington (parent) into school. Mr Waddington was the lead architect of the Titanic Visitors Centre in Belfast. As part of the P7 Literacy topic ‘Titanic,’ Mr Waddington guided the children through the whole design process of the building and its links with Harland & Wolff. He spoke about the design of the Queen’s Island site and the development of the building from its inception to completion.
Facts and figures were discussed along with a few inside secrets related to the Titanic building. Several modern day myths were revealed too which follows through on the many myths already associated with the ill-fated ship.
Following the presentation Mr Waddington presented each child with mementos from the Titanic Visitors Centre including the T- shirts we can see the children proudly wearing.
Who knows, we may be looking at some of the next generation of architects!
Many thanks to Mr Waddington for a most informative visit to P7.
