An Ideal School Tour
The Jeanie Johnston is an ideal focus for a School Tour, for children at all levels, with many different aspects that can be emphasised
- Learn what the journey to the New World was like, how long it took and how harsh conditions were
- Hear the stories of real people who travelled on the ship to a new life in America
- Bring to life the pressures created by the famine and poverty to take on a journey into the unknown
- Hear why no lives were lost on this ship despite the long journey in difficult conditions
Marvel at the craftsmanship involved in building a Tall Ship of this type and the expertise required to sail her safely on long journeys.
