Our school was awarded the Meath County Council Pride of Place Level 5 Award for the third year running. The scheme promotes outdoor learning for primary school pupils. Pupils from all classes were engaged in activities during the year.
The assessment was carried out by Philip Mc Cormack, who was very engaging with the fifth class pupils, along with the green team and pupils from other classes, who were all at separate stations to describe work going on in the classes throughout the year.
We had wildflowers, nests, birds, hens, trees, mini-beasts and a range of vegetables, including yacon, a South American vegetable being grown for the very first time in our school. The green team also did a brilliant job of talking about global issues such as water conservation, greenhouse emissions and fossil fuels.
Well done to everyone on a great year’s work!
