An choill bheag
Article Uploaded : 11/02/2022 09:48:52 by Midleton College

Thank you so much to the TY Horticulture students, Green school students and Horticulture Club for their hard work and for being such great ambassadors for our school. Over the course of two Thursdays, the students planted approx. 200 trees as part of the An Choill bheag tree planting project which is sponsored by Cully and Sully.

It was impressive and truly inspiring to see the students' unwavering commitment and enthusiasm under the guidance of  Niamh Ní Dhúill and Rachel Geary from Learning about Forests (LEAF), Ms. Walsh, Ms. Henry, Canon Orr (Horticulture) and Ms. McGrath (Green Schools). A special thank you also to the ground staff Mr. Callender, Mr. McGuire and Mr. N. Aherne for sharing their expertise and for collecting and delivering cardboard for mulching, as well as to Mr. O'Connoll and Ms. Duggan for the many culinary treats keeping everyone's spirits (and sugar levels) up. 

It was a very worthwhile cause and we are looking forward to welcoming Niamh back to us in April when we will learn more about trees and how to care for them and our environment.
