The term got off to a very active and very green start last week. We took part in lots of exciting activities in school last week and have lots more action planned for the rest of the term.
All classes planted plugs on Thursday. These will be transferred to our new beds to be built at the front of the school in the coming weeks.
Green Schools – Biodiversity:
We are delighted to receive the news during the week that we are to be awarded our fifth Green Flag for Biodiversity. Thank you to Ms. Magrane and the Green School Committee for all the hard work and effort in preparing the application for submission. Congratulations to the whole school community on such a wonderful achievement.
Paddy Madden, a school garden expert, visited the school last Friday, 13/4/18. Every child was treated to a visit to the nature museum that Paddy brought with him. After lunch he worked with staff members and senior pupils on plans for the school garden which will include – 1. a woodland area, 2. a sensory garden and 3. a planting area. We are very excited about this new venture and will update you as we go. If you would like to get involved with this project, please let Mrs. Sherlock or Mona know.
