Making Background: Rasharkin Primary School worked with St Patrick's Primary School in Rasharkin in 2016-2018 to train as Forest Schools. The school grounds in both Primary Schools were used alternatively.
Rasharkin Primary School has a wonderful outdoor space for the kids to learn and explore in, with a mixture of formal and informal areas.

Painting Forest School setting: Rasharkin Primary School is a small school, with a unique family atmosphere, where staff get to know pupils well. We understand and value the contributions parents and others, e.g. professional agencies, members of the local community can make to their child s learning journey and so aim to work in close partnership, enabling the children to reach the highest possible standards and an enthusiasm for life, together with a sense of pride in themselves, their school and community.
