We are working towards our fifth flag, which is Biodiversity.
Biodiversity Speaker – Dale Treadwell paid a visit to our school!
(14 Feb 2018)
Dale Treadwell visited the children and spoke to them about the importance of Biodiversity in Ireland, focusing on the importance of Wild Flowers in our surrounding area and the different species that rely heavily upon them to survive. We used viewfinders to look at beetles, earwigs, woodlouse and lots of other interesting little creatures! He helped us to plant new species in our garden and also donated four beautiful Rowan trees to our school.
Looking at our immediate environment, we mapped our school:
