Harold Road-a project involving every child in the school, and every
aspect of the curriculum. A large exhibition was opened to the public
at the school. The children also produced a large quilt depicting various
aspects of the town's past and present.
St. Michael's-project included the construction of computer controlled
working models, and the staging of an ambitious musical play tracing
the history of the town. Craft projects looked especially at the role of
the canals in local history.

Abergavenny Castle, St. Mary's Church and Great Trerhyw Farm.
Llantilio Pertholau-a project encompassing work from the reception class
to top juniors-clothing and farming were well covered-spinning,
weaving and style of clothes. The infants concentrated on Abergavenny
Fair and produced craftwork of a remarkable standard.
