Green Schools – A huge thank you to Albert Nolan from the National Heritage Council who visited our school on Tuesday and Wednesday. Albert took all classes out in turn to help them to become more aware of biodiversity within our school grounds. He taught the children about our school plants; he showed them a bat and also how to create their own biodiversity trail. It was very beneficial towards attaining our next Green Flag on biodiversity.
