At Canon Sheehan Primary School we are working hard to achieve the fifth Green Flag for Biodiversity. The overall aim of the Biodiversity theme is for schools to increase awareness of the importance of biodiversity and to come up with ways to help biodiversity.
In our biodiversity garden we have planted holly, spindle, amelancher and whitethorn trees. We planted heathers, herbs and bee or butterfly friendly bulbs. The grass in some areas around the school is being left uncut for wildflowers. We hope to attract more insects and birds into our garden with a micropond, an insect house, bird feeders and a robin nest box.
We also have planted onions, peas and broad beans We have had our renewal visit with David Macllwraith from ‘An Taisce’ and the online application for the Biodiversity Flag has been submitted.
