Biodiversity Flag Evaluation! Darragh, from Kildare County Council, visited us to evaluate all the work we've done around the school in our efforts to achieve our Biodiversity Green Flag. We'll find out soon if we've been successful!
Park 'n' Stride We do a regular park & stride to keep fit & help the environment! Pupils volunteer to come in to school early to keep a log of how many people walk from the drop-off points around the school
Work on our Biodiversity Flag continues... We had a fascinating visit from Dale Treadwell! We learned lots from him about plants and animals. He also helped us plant some bulbs in the front garden. We can't wait to see them come up each spring!
