Students Make Seed Balls

Ms. Owens and Ms. Brennan organised Eco Unesco Workshops for their classes last week. Laura-Kate Howell treated the students to hands on Biodiversity Workshops. There was great excitement as students enjoyed Magenta style learning as they collaborated, shared and participated. The highlight was the actual making of their seed balls, which they then were able to bring home. Thanks to Carlow County Council for sponsoring these very educational and enjoyable workshops. The students are looking forward to finding out what grows from their seed balls in the spring and summer.
