National Tree Week 2023

On Thursday, October 5th, we had a special celebration at our school. We planted a native Hazel tree for National Tree Day 2023! This tree is found all over Ireland, and it’s famous for its delicious hazelnuts. At this time of year there are very few hazelnuts left as the squirrels and mice gather them and save them for winter.  It’s not just for squirrels and mice; it also helps lots of other animals and bugs too, like lichens and insects.

We want to say a big thank you to Spar for giving us the little tree, and a big shoutout to Ms. O’Dwyer and her 4th class for planting it with such care!
