This December, Northern Ireland Water brought us a water butt. We will be able to collect rain water and use it to water our vegetable patch and flower beds! Thank you NI water!
At Killard House School, we have been working towards a ‘green flag award’. Our main focus has been on litter and waste, outdoor learning and energy. We regularly take part in local beach clean and litter pick activities. We have allocated Bin Monitors, and learn about proper disposal of waste/ recycling. We grow our own vegetables and bee-friendly plants in our veg patch, poly tunnel and greenhouse. We have made our own bug hotel and bird houses, and there is a mini wetland area.We look after chickens and have been making our new outdoor learning area look beautiful!
Our school is home to lots of mini-beasts! We have recently discovered a family of frogs in our wetland area, and a huge dragonfly was relaxing nearby too!
