Schooldays Over FIS Film

We interviewed 98 year old great grandfather of one our class and then re-enacted some of the scenes for his school days such as walking to school in his bare feet, playing "banging buttons" in the school yard, "drawing" water from the well, saving turf for the school fire with the slane and a visit from the school photographer.
