Eco Schools – Woodland Trust Planting


The boys and girls of Kirkcolm Primary rolled up their sleeves and got stuck in to some planting this week.  We applied to the Woodland Trust to receive a grant of 20 different tree saplings and 20 shrubs for our school grounds.  The aim of the project is to support biodiversity and to create natural habitats for wildlife in our area.  We have been gifted species such as rowan, birch and hawthorn to name but a few.

There was many a volunteer to help Mrs Richardson in the task in hand. It is hoped that the plants will flourish and give pleasure for years to come.

Mrs Manson has also been working behind the scenes to help support our insect species.  She has given up her own time and resources to create an insect-friendly bee and butterfly flowering garden at the entrance to the school.  Once the clumps have established this year, she has kindly offered to come and show the children how to divide their plants so that they can share them with Leswalt pupils so that they can create their own insect friendly flowering garden when they return there.






Work is also continuing on our Bug Mansion.  We are at the final stages of preparation and are just about ready to construct.  Watch this space…
