Glentoran & The world around us

Glentoran and the World Around Us is an education program for primary school children in support of their World War II history lessons with a focus on the Belfast Blitz. The Oval holds a unique piece of history on its football ground – a Type 24 Pillbox that survived the air raid by the German Luftwaffe. 

This three-part project starts in the classroom, followed by a visit to The Oval Pill box, finishing with a visit to the NI War Memorial Museum. This program is in partnership with Victoria Primary School, Eastside Learning and the NI War Memorial Museum.
