Environmentalist Gerard Clarke visits

Last Friday, environmentalist Gerard Clarke visited the school and spoke to all classes.  Before lunch, he brought the junior classes on a nature walk pointing out different species of plant.  The poor weather in the afternoon meant that we were confined indoors but nevertheless, it was a very interesting and informative day.  Many thanks to the Parents' Association for organising the visit.  Gerard had visited the area before Easter for a walk in Portlick Forest also organised by the Parents' Association (photos below).
