Class 5 Visit Appledore Shipbuilders

At the end of July 2018, the children in Class Five were lucky enough to be invited to tour the latest Naval Ship being built at Appledore Shipbuilders.  We spent the morning being shown around the vessel prior to her Sea Trials, and enjoyed finding out more about the ship and all of her systems.  Everyone enjoyed our sneak peeks in the engine room, and our introduction to the key plumbing and electrical systems.  We were also given a fantastic tour of the ship's bridge, and an Irish Naval Officer explained to us how all of the systems work together to ensure the ship runs smoothly.


We all had a fabulous morning exploring the ship, and would like to say a huge thank you to Appledore Shipbuilders and the Irish Navy for all of their help and for making us feel so welcome!
