School Vegetable Garden

As part of our green schools' biodiversity work our boys commenced work on a vegetable garden. 22 tonnes of gravel were infilled against the school wall and planks were purchased from a builders' providers. With the help of caretaker Ronan the boys constructed vegetable beds.


On Monday, April 16th 6th class began planting in our vegetable garden. The boys under the direction of their teacher and assistance of caretaker Ronan planted potatoes in potato drills. Turnips and carrots were also planted. The boys had previously prepared the vegetable beds and weeded them thoroughly.


Vegetable Garden Produce

After a dismal summer our Vegetable Garden produced some excellent vegetables. See picture on the right with some of our Environmental Committee.
