Our garden began life as an earth bank which we cleared off and planted. We designed a walkway through the trees and added an outdoor drum (kindly donated). We added an outdoor seating area with benches. This has recently been enhanced with the addition of extra benches, kindly donated by two families.
Over the years, pupils have planted a variety of vegetables in our vegetable beds including carrots, peas, lettuce, onions and potatoes. We also grew some fabulous pumpkins!
We added a new section to our garden this summer which is an infant play area called ‘Tír na nÓg’. Our beautiful new area has a sensory garden, a playhouse and a sand play area. The mosaic tiles were designed and made by last year’s 5th class and look beautiful in the area. The are was officially opened by the Junior Infants and their 6th class ‘buddies’ on Friday, 29th August 2014.
