Cahersiveen National School

In this project, pupils in sixth class in Saint Joseph’s Girls National School, Cahersiveen, interviewed their Grandparents on a range of topics.

The girls had the privilege of acquiring invaluable information, which may not always be available.  The project is in the form of a series of “Question & Answer” sessions, with each girl interviewing one of her grandparents on a particular topic.
