River Explorers Programme, 28th February 2019

Pupils from 4th, 5th and 6th Classes recently participated in the one-day River Explorers Programme which is funded by Waterways Ireland.

The morning consisted of class based activities where the pupils learned about ‘leaving no trace’ and animals, birds and insects that are native to Ireland.

The afternoon session comprised of identifying leaves and plants close to the canal in Ballyconnell, followed by an examination of a water sample from the canal, where they got to identify different water borne insects.
