Coole Park Visit

Our 4th class joined the 5th and 6th Classes in Coole Park on Wednesday 4th November. Mrs O' Donnell was the lucky teacher who was allowed to accompany us. It was a dry day and we were dressed for the occasion in our wellies, hats and coats. We were taken to the Nursery and the Library in the Visitor Centre. Then we had lunch in the Tearoom. We watched a short film about bats in the attic of a school in Oughterard.

Following the film, we went into the woods and learned how trees pollinate. We then made our way to the Turlough and examined the Horse Pump. After that we visited the walled garden, saw the Autograph Tree and the sundial. Thanks to Delores for a wonderful day and to Hilda for making us feel so welcome.

Our school loves being part of the Friends of Coole Programme
