Just to update everyone on what has happened with this project to date. Many thanks to all who contacted me since I last posted requesting old Buntús filmstrips as well as history/geography/nature/science filmstrips. I received a great response. To date I’ve received more than 300 filmstrips! I’ve got almost a full set of Buntús filmstrips, except for the odd one here and there and I received none for junior infants (Imir agus Abair) – perhaps there may not have been any for that class? I have the full set of teacher manuals for the Buntús also.
What was surprising was the other filmstrips that were unearthed – lots of really interesting geography, nature and local history. Unfortunately, what is missing for these are the teacher notes, without which I feel the resource may not be as good. So if anyone has any notes to accompany any of these filmstrips could you please let me know. Now the filmstrips just have to be digitised and converted into Powerpoint resources! Hopefully, over the summer they will begin to appear on the Seomra Ranga website. Again many thanks to all for your interest and support.
