Welcome to our special 1916 magazine for schools

Tomorrow the Irish Independent begins a very special collection of supplements that will tell the momentous story of the Easter Rising.

Today we bring you a different sort of magazine - one aimed at schools and young people. It's designed to help students and teachers learn about, and take part in, the many exciting events included in the Youth and Imagination section of 'Ireland 2016' - the official programme of activities to mark the 1916 Centenary.

Inside you will find useful tools and information on family tree research, how to use archives, census and military records. There are also examples of how schools and students are devising projects to help them tell the dramatic stories that shaped our nation's history - as well as the details of some brilliant all-island competitions for schools.
