Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. George Santayana

History at Ballycastle High School aims to stimulate interest and enthusiasm for a study of the past, whilst using a range of teaching and learning activities.
The department seeks to foster those skills traditionally associated with the teaching and study of History eg. translation, analysis, application, extrapolation, evaluation and empathy. In addition, the department will also aim to develop the skills associated with literacy, oral and written expression, I.C.T. and numeracy.
The main emphasis in the teaching (and learning) of this subject has to be enjoyment!!
