An Irish School’s Request To Its Pupils: Bring your Grandparents in!

I came across this whilst researching documentaries on the subject and was touched listening to this short piece about a  school in Sligo, which in order to celebrate its 50th anniversary, asked pupils to bring in their grandparents to share their stories with them. Here is what happened.

Maple Walk a Go!

Thank you to Maple Walk Primary School in Harlesden and Mrs Gillam, the headteacher, as well as Miss Dancey for inviting Our Stories. The Reception class children are now busy collecting stories from their grandparents and I look forward to hearing them all after half-term.
