Celebrating 150 years of Northern Ireland's Leading Grammar School
Floreat Collegium: A 150th Anniversary Portrait of Methodist College Belfast is a lavishly illustrated history of this Northern Irish grammar school. Through an engaging mixture of chronological and thematic chapters, Floreat Collegium tells the story of a College that grew against a formidable background of two world wars and the turbulent 'Troubles'. Flourishing from the Edwardian period in Belfast through to the 21st Century, the College is proud of the continued growth in the diversity of its pupils - an achievement that will be clearly reflected in this beautiful book.
This fully illustrated hardback will include key moments in the College's history, never-before-seen archive material and heart-warming anecdotes from Old Collegians and the wider Methody community. Floreat Collegium is the perfect gift for past, present and future students of Methodist College and for all readers interested in the wider history of developing education in Northern Ireland's capital city.
