Discover Cork Schools Heritage Project

Against the backdrop of Covid 19, the Discover Cork: Schools’ Heritage Project 2021 (Cork City Edition) launches its 18th year and is open to schools in Cork City. Funded by Cork City Council. The Project is an initiative of the Cork City Heritage Plan. The City Edition of the Discover Cork: Schools’ Heritage Project (est. 2002/03) is aimed at both primary and post primary level. Project books may be submitted on any aspect of Cork’s rich past. Suggested topics are over the page. The theme for this year’s project is “Living Through History”, which is a nod to the historic pandemic we are living through. FREE and important project support in the form of funded workshops (socially distanced, virtual or hybrid) led by Cllr. Kieran McCarthy in participating schools will be held in October 2020. This is an hour workshop to give participating students ideas for compilation and resources. FREE Workshop support is also available to schools which may have never entered before and wish to have a workshop to see how the project works.
