Kilteevan National School Sensory Garden

DSC 0050

Kilteevan National School are very proud of their recently completed School Sensory Garden / Outdoor Classroom. The students, staff, parents and the wider community worked together on this project. The garden, which has a seating area, provides an outdoor classroom to help develop the creativity and imagination of all the students. The garden incorporates all aspects of our Green School flags to date – a compost area (litter), wind-turbine (energy), water harvesting system (water) and footsteps (travel). Next year we are aiming for our Biodiversity Flag – the garden is a haven of colour with flowers and trees, which attract birds, bees, butterflies and all kinds of mini-beasts. The children are keeping a close eye on activity in the garden especially in the bug hotel. The sensory area invigorates the children’s sense of smell, hearing, touch, sight and taste. The children are really looking forward to tasting the herbs in the herb garden and the apples have already been harvested from our two apple trees.

Much appreciation is due to the parents and community who supported our recent coffee morning and volunteered to help repaint the surrounding fence. Roscommon County Council awarded our school a grant of €900 for our project “Inviting Biodiversity to live in our Outdoor Sensory Classroom” for which we are very grateful.
