Minibeast Hunt

We went on a hunt for minibeasts around the school today. We used lots of scientific equipment to help us identify the creepy crawlies.


We really enjoyed it and had fun in the sunshine!

Best School Garden in Wexford.

For the second year in a row our “Gairdín Glas” has won the Platinum Award in the Wexford in Bloom competition. The judges were so impressed with our range of plants, our “Outdoor Classroom” and our biodiversity areas that they gave us the top award in the competition. Congratulations to our Green Flag Committee and all who have helped to make the garden such a wonderful asset for the school; a special word of thanks to parents Helen Mc Lean and Senan O Reilly for all their work in the garden. This is a photo of members of our Green Flag committee Sinéad O Reilly, Liadh Dwyer, Ms. English and Senan O Reilly receiving the award.

Sunflower Taller Than Mr. Gately

This year we grew 2 sunflowers in “An Gairdín Glas” and they are now flowering. We took a photograph of 2 sixth class and 2 junior infant pupils beside one of the sunflowers. When Mr. Gately stood beside the sunflower it was even taller than him.


Green Day 27th June 2012 – Calling all Michael Flatelys and Jean Butlers

Posted on June 26th, 2012 in Green Flag,Latest News,School Garden by Mrs. English  Tagged

The raising of our Fifth green flag and the official opening of our school garden – An Gairdin Glas will take place on Wednesday 27th June.  We are planning a fun filled day as we are also hosting our annual damshsathon.  Our damshsathon will commence at 10am out in the yard and there will also be performances of songs and dances by individual classes.

The raising of our fifth green flag will take place at 11.15 at the front of the school and this will be followed by the official opening of our school garden by Sr Siobhan Hayden.

The parents council will provide light refreshments in the halla after the ceremonies.

Parents are welcome on the day to join in the festivities.  Unfortunately there will be no parking available on the school grounds on Wednesday.

Fingers crossed for some fine weather!

Frogspawn in our School Garden

Next time you visit our School Garden why not see if you can find the frogspawn. 

Be careful when you are searching for them that you don’t fall into the water!

Fruit Glorious Fruit

Posted on February 20th, 2012 in School Garden by Mrs. English  Tagged

Our expert gardeners have been busy over the past few weeks.  Junior infants and senior infants have planted elsanta strawberry plants in the raised beds.  The plants have been covered so that they will ripen in early, hopefully around the end of May or beginning of June.  A big thank-you to John Kent for putting up the strawberry tunnels.  He will be rewarded in the summer with juicy strawberries.

First class boys and girls have planted raspberry canes.  The children planted Autumn Bliss canes, these will bear their fruit at the beginning of September, just in time for us when we come back to school.

Has anyone noticed the naughty puppy in the raspberry cane bed?
