Six of our Fifth Class pupils attended the Boyne Valley Hotel to present their projects on work in the school. The project presentation was part of a biodiversity forum, organised by the Irish Beekeeping Association, about biodiversity in Ireland.
The aim is to increase awareness about biodiversity, and how everybody can make small spaces in their homes, their gardens and on their farms, for more species to exist, as numbers are dropping throughout the country. Ms. Collins and Mrs. Kelly had prepared a board of picture information on all of the work that has been done in the school in this area in the last few years, including a green flag on biodiversity.
The pupils were just after finishing their Pride of Place presentation a number of weeks ago, and they each spoke about areas such as our pond, wildflower meadows, bottle greenhouse, wildlife corridors, grass couch, and experts who have called to the school to talk to pupils about biodiversity.
The pupils also had the added incentive of rubbing shoulders with royalty, as Prince Rainier of Monaco was the keynote speaker at the event. Well done to them all on their work.
