Mrs Gallagher’s class plantings trees

Biodiversity: The children plant spring bulbs every October and tend to the school gardens. They harvest the gardens in Sept/Oct weed and leave for the winter. We plant tree seeds in October and celebrate Tree day. We feed the birds every winter and learn about Irish birds. We learn about the bees, butterflies and mini beasts every year and have planted bee bombs in the garden to attract the bees to our school.




Litter and Spring Clean We have litter wardens who keep the school neat and tidy by picking up litter on a daily basis, this is why the school is so clean and tidy. We participate in the Tidy Towns spring clean every year with the Volt House and the Central National School
