Another week, and it's another amazing line-up of special guests on Home School Hub. Séamus the Dog is getting political again as he grilled an Taoiseach this week.

He's like a dog with a bone, he's a great nose for a story..OK we'll stop now...

An Taoiseach Micheál Martin tells us that even leaders can be nervous but the most important thing is to believe in yourself. Did you know that he used to be a teacher and that he always tried to encourage self-confidence in his class?

Watch the full interview here!

 

And there were great guests all week. You can find out more below!
