We are absolutely thrilled to be a part of the Young Tree Council and we were very lucky to receive a visit from Ben this year, who encouraged us to think about how important nature is to us!

Health and Wellbeing is a major focus for us here at Carrickmannon and we are extending and nurturing our outdoor spaces to promote outdoor learning. We believe that looking after ourselves and nature go hand in hand and we plan to join our hands together and make a large impact!

We want to thank the Tree Council for our trees and hedges and we used them to build garden spaces throughout our school site. We cannot wait to see birds and wildlife come to visit and even use some fruit in our canteen!
