We really have been busy increasing the biodiversity in our school grounds this year. We've planted a variety of flowers, trees and vegetables; We've hung and maintained bird feeders; We've built a bug hotel and have hung up some little ones and we've increased our little Pollination Plot. We'll be following the All Ireland Pollinator Plan's 6 week mowing cycle - just in case you thought we were letting the place go wild ----- we are! We've already witnessed an increase in wildlife. (The teachers have been complaining about dirt on their cars - those parked under the bird feeders anyhow!!!) And long may it continue.....
This was our original Habitat Plan...spot the difference...
St. Michael's was one of 3 schools to be awarded Ireland's First Green Flags. We have received 9 flags since. We are now working on our Global Citizenship Enery Flag.
