Tree Background: We undertook our Forest School training in 2018 under the Shared Education programme with Taughmonagh Primary School. We used a local Belfast City Council Park which was perfect for what we wanted to do. We are hugely enthusiastic about outdoor learning and see the massive benefits it brings for our pupils.

Investigation" Forest School setting: Forest School activity helps us achieve our mission statement - The provision of a quality education at Harberton will offer a child moments of delight, moments of wonder, pride in achievement and happiness in being accepted. By doing this we hope that each child will achieve his/her full potential. We use our own grounds and the local City Park which is a short walk away.
