Education Packs for Schools

In 2003 Galway Civic Trust was granted €2,500 by the Heritage Council towards the cost of producing an education pack for schools. Entitled Galway - It's My City / Gaillimh - 'Sé Mo Chathair, the pack was written and published by Galway Civic Trust for distribution to all of the Primary Schools in the city, and was launched by the then Minister for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs, Éamon Ó Cuiv. The pack was the first such educational resource produced in Ireland for use alongside the existing Primary School curriculum. The material contained in the Pack is specifically related to Galway city, with a comprehensive section on "Galway - It's History and Heritage".

Galway - It's My City / Gaillimh - 'Sé Mo Chathair is designed for use by 5th and 6th class primary students, and it aims to create a knowledge of what makes Galway special, thereby encouraging our youth to take pride in their City, and become the kind of citizens who take care of it.
