In recent years we have constructed a roof top garden co-ordinated by Siobhán Morahan with the assistance of Kay Synott, our caretaker Gerry Higgins, parents and pupils. Each spring our students get to work in the garden planting and caring for a range of flowers and vegetables.
Our garden is a very important part of our school life. Children get to experience nature in the heart of the city and get the opportunity to plant seeds, do some weeding and learn about the importance of crop rotation.
This year we harvested potatoes, peas, carrots, beetroots, turnips, rhubarb and strawberries. Our sunflowers were taller than most of the pupils themselves!
