Various Past Activities > Events

On Thursday 22nd April '10, third class  participated in a field trip to the Irish Natural Forestry Foundation in Manch, Ballineen.  Throughout the day the children completed a variety of activities which aimed to create an understanding and awareness of our local natural environment.  These included—collection and analysis of mini-beasts and their natural habitats,  study of trees and their leaves, camouflage exercises, a scavenger hunt and woodland art.

All of these activities form an integral part of the SESE curriculum and we are extremely lucky to have such a valuable resource so close to our school.  

Third class travelled to the Sustainable Forestry Education Centre, Manch, on Tuesday 24th May.  

The children thoroughly enjoyed their day and gained a valuable insight into the importance of understanding and caring for our natural environment.
