Wellbeing & Plant workshop
The children in the senior room enjoyed a wellbeing and plant workshop recently. They learned about the importance of wellbeing, why we should take care of ourselves, how to take care of our wellbeing and hiow we can do so using plants. The connection between plants and humans was also discussed. Thank you to Zameel for taking the time to present the workshop and for giving the children the gift if a plant at the end of the workshop.
We are so proud of the pupils in our school. A group of children decided to organise a bake sale in aid of a local organisation- The Rainbow Club for Autism. The children baked all the cakes and sold them in the local area. They raised over €200 on the day. Well done!
