Clonmore National School Nurtures Nature
Efforts to achieve our fifth Green Flag are now well underway. We hope to be awarded the An Taisce Green Flag for Biodiversity in May 2014.
On 18th September, we held a 'Biodiversity Day of Action' in conjunction with a visit from Paddy Madden from the 'Heritage in Schools' scheme. During the course of the day we discovered the wonderful world of biodiversity in our school's surroundings. We investigated the habitats, eco systems and wildlife species in our area.
Some of the biodiversity initiatives which are now underway in our school include the creation of a wildlife and butterfly garden, the care of our birds during the Winter months, the placing of hedgehog boxes in our hedgerows, along with the creation of a leaf pile to provide a habitat for minibeasts.
