Wicklow People - - NEWS -

ST Saviour’s Na­tional School, Rath­drum has been se­lected as one of the six fi­nal­ists in the na­tional Ir­ish Wildlife Trust Award.

The Wick­low school is the only fi­nal­ist in the county and will com­pete with oth­ers schools from across Ire­land to claim the award for bio­di­ver­sity.

For the project, the school cre­ated an out­door class­room as part of its wood­land project.

It was cre­ated on an area of un­used land, which the par­ents and students re­stored to cre­ate a foot­ball pitch, out­door class­room and play­huts.

Fu­ture plans in­clude a sen­sory gar­den, sen­sory path, mud craft, bush craft, vegetable gar­den.

St Saviour’s NS is ask­ing the Wick­low pub­lic to show sup­port and cast votes on­line to help them se­cure the award.

Vot­ing in­for­ma­tion is avail­able at https:// iwt.ie/bio­di­ver­sity-awards/vote-schools and the clos­ing date is Fri­day, Jan­uary 14.

Pupils and staff at St Saviour’s NS are look­ing for the pub­lic’s sup­port, and more im­por­tantly, votes, for its out­door class­room.
