The Winter Storms got the better of our polytunnel

This February a winter storm got the better of the school poly-tunnel that our children use to learn about Planning, Gardening, Sustainability, Teamwork and so much more.

The children really love their gardening lessons and were so looking forward to get growing again after the lengthy school closure. Given the extent of the damage the entire tunnel needs to be recovered.

Whilst parents will volunteer their time and some funds have already been raised, there is a shortfall of about €1,700 for materials and to pay a professional to help us recover the tunnel.

We are reaching out to you to ask you for your help in supporting this project so that the gardening lessons can continue in a meaningful way in all weathers. Any excess funds raised will be used for gardening tools, to purchase organic seeds or make upgrades in the outdoor play area.

“Receive the child with reverence,

Educate the child with love,

Send the child forth in freedom.”

“You cannot predict the outcome of human development. All you can do is like a farmer create the conditions under which it will begin to flourish.”
