We are keen to run St. Lauretia in a number of schools, and hopefully create new lessons from these experiences. If you have access to Minecraft in your school, and are interested in helping us, please contact Nelson.Mundell@gla.ac.uk
These can be downloaded soon.
We are grateful to our colleagues for their help in advancing the project:
Ms. J. Irvine Lourdes Secondary School, Glasgow
Mr. G. Murray St. Mary’s Music School, Edinburgh
Mr. D. Charles & Ms. B. Peake The History Teachers’ Association of Northern Ireland
