Schools Programme

Monday 27th to Friday 31st

Throughout the week we have a vibrant schools programme. In conjunction with the Heritage in Schools Project we will have a number of scientists and artists visiting primary schools in our area.

Gordon D’arcy, one of Ireland’s foremost artists/ecologists, will be explaining the wonders of our place in his own inimitable stye as will Michael Jacob and Mags Flaherty, two other outstanding ecologists.

School gardens and vegetable growing will also be a focus of the week.

Field trips are also an integral part of our programme as they give children a real hands on experience of their own place.
