We are very lucky to have such a wonderful school garden in Mount Hanover. The children are always fully involved in all the work that goes on and they ensure the garden is always looking well under the guidance of Ms O’Loughlin and parent volunteers. We have vegetable boxes, fruit trees, a sensory garden filled with lovely aromas and much more. The garden is filled with colour, with brightly painted fences and tyres. Our garden also contains a water butt which we use to collect rainwater. This rainwater is then used to water the garden thus ensuring we are conserving water as much as possible.
Our school garden is entered into the Meath County Council Pride of Place competition and we have reached Level 4 in the competition. The school garden group work extremely hard maintaining what is already there and also extending and further developing the vegetable garden and sensory garden.
We planted ‘Sunflower Seeds’ as part of our work on living things. We are excited to see what happens over the coming weeks!
How lovely it is to see the bright spring flowers blooming in our school garden.
We are looking for parent volunteers to help out with the school garden.
If you can give some time towards this please contact Ms. O’Loughlin or Suzanne Bellew.
Judging for this years’ Pride of Place took place today.
Thank you to Mrs. Ryan and our parent helpers led by Suzanne Bellew and Georgina Gogan for all their hard work in getting the garden ready!
