Grandmother's Day 2016
All participants received a certificate of participation, every school had a winner with a prize of Slow Food Galway apron for child and grandparent.Both winning schools won a cookery demonstration at either "Loam” www.loamgalway.com/or
This was so exciting for both schools. 3rd Class from Carnaun primary school in Athenry took a bus into “Loam” on a Monday morning in April.
The following day a very excited group arrived in “Kai” from Tirellan primary school in the city. The prize winning pupil had written some lovely memories of her grandmother’s from her childhood on a small farm in Co Galway. They never wasted anything on the farm in those days – I think its called “Nose to Tail” nowadays. One of things this grandmother loved to do as a child was make butter so she and her granddaughter made butter and the little girl documented the experience through word and photo. On hearing the prize winners story Jess Murphy of Kai invited the class to a butter making demo with her own hand glass butter churn and some machine churning on the side.
