Description   A nun teaching a group of six-year-old boys, in a school classroom in Ballyfermot, Dublin on 10 December 1970. The boys are seated in twos behind wooden desks, their books open in front of them. The nun is leaning over one of the desks, handing a piece of paper to one of the boys. Children's paintings can be seen on the wall in the background.
