THE pupils and staff of St. Brigid's donned their gardening gear and had a day of planting and digging in raised beds, in the school's nature trail and even in old wellingtons on Thursday November 17.
Pupils constructed a Bug Hotel and created fairylands from recycled pots and materials. Others made weather vanes, wind chimes, water butts, and miniature herb gardens, with a self-watering system (all using recycled materials, twigs, stones and leaves).
The school's wormery was opened up to reveal a large family of worms. The children learned first- hand how important worms are to our eco-system and one or two pupils were even brave enough to handle the worms.
