Students from Bunscoil na Toirbhirte, Mitchelstown, in Cork had a grand day out when they took part in a beach exploration workshop hosted by Green-Schools at Tramore beach recently.
The group was one of 80 classes from 38 primary schools to take part in the SeaKeepers Project, and were the lucky winners of this year’s field trip to the beach.
The SeaKeepers Project is an initiative of the Green-Schools Marine Environment theme, which provides primary school teachers with resources and lesson plans focusing on the ecology of six native Irish marine species.
We’re delighted to provide an opportunity for these students to get out of the classroom and experience the coastline first-hand
Green-Schools National Manager Cathy Baxter welcomed the students to the seashore: “We’re delighted to provide an opportunity for these students to get out of the classroom and experience the coastline first-hand. We hope that the SeaKeepers Project and the Green-Schools Programme will encourage children to enjoy the wonders of our shores with their friends and families this summer.”
