Both staff and children were looking forward to welcoming Mr. Paddy Madden, the school gardener, on Friday 11th October and they were not disappointed. Each class was treated to a nature workshop centred around the theme of Autumn. Mr. Madden brought many interesting things for the children to see and touch, including samples of autumn fruits, nuts, berries, leaves and bulbs such as hyacinth and white daffodil. He also had hibernation boxes that he had made for bees and ladybirds. He spoke to the children about hibernation, migration and the various different forms of seed dispersal. He also suggested one good way of tackling climate change – plant a tree! He even donned a Wexford jersey as his visit coincided with Goal Jersey Day. Well done Paddy!!!
