Work on our outdoor classroom began on the 22nd of May 2017. The space required a lot of care and attention to become what it is today this was with the assistance of parents from the school. This is in preparation for our Fifth Green Flag for Biodiversity as well as preparations for the Entente Florale Competition which Abbeyleix is partaking in this July.
First the area had to be cleared and made safe.
Then work began on creating bug hotels, seating areas, flower beds and butterfly garden.
The pupils even enjoyed a teddy bears picnic in their new outdoor space, check out the blog post for how they got on Teddy Bears Picnic
