Grassroots Challenge

The Eco Team, made up of members from Classes 9 and 11, are taking part in a Grassroots Challenge organised by Ulster Wildlife Trust. This is an eight-week programme that delivers a series of nature and wildlife sessions within our school grounds. The pupils will gain confidence learning about the world around them, working with others and caring for living things.

This month the pupils did a survey of their school grounds and discussed ways that they could encourage wildlife to visit. We learned all about our garden birds and we had a visit from a bat. We discovered what these creatures eat and the types of homes they live in. The Eco Team have really enjoyed the programme so far and look forward to the coming weeks.
