Our school garden was developed in 2013 with the help of our Parent Association. Work on the garden began early in 2013 and the garden was in full bloom by the summer of that year. The school garden has become an outdoor classroom and all children from Junior Infants to 6th Class work on growing plants and vegetables from seed. Last year our peas won second prize at the annual Banteer Show and our basket of vegetables won third prize. We are very proud of our garden and will continue to watch it grow and develop over the coming years.

It was time to put on our gardening gloves once more and pay some attention to our school garden. The weather hasn’t been so kind but here are some pictures of us making a start
Building our Garden
February 26, 2015
Our school garden came about due to the hard work and commitment of some wonderful parents. We are so grateful to them for making raised beds and preparing the site for the garden. “From little acorns mighty oaks grow”.
We can’t wait to start growing in our new garden!
