Bug Hotel

R2 have begun to create a Bug Hotel in the school’s Native Garden.

Ms Thompson kindly delivered two pallets to school from which we are creating our Bug Hotel.

The boys in R2 and the Green Schools’ Committee are collecting plastic bottles filled with materials from the garden and the home. We are putting these into the Bug Hotel.

We are hoping to attract all kinds of bugs who are looking for a new home!

Éanna Ní Lamhna visits our school

The Green School Committee was delighted to welcome a very special visitor on October 15th. Éanna Ní Lamhna of TV3 and RTE Radio fame visited the school to share her fantastic knowledge of  Biodiversity.

She brought us around the school grounds and showed that, even as a roadside urban school, we have a lot of nature around us.

Éanna gave us lots of ideas to help make our school more ‘Biodiverse’,  including the creation of a Native Garden.

We can’t wait to put some of her ideas into practice!
