Volunteers wanted: We welcome parents helping with our Forest School programme.

Getting Background: We secured a Forest School Award in 2018/19 from Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council. Our P4 teachers and class visited Moira Demesne to undertake their training and forest school assessments.

Developing Forest School setting: The school is well known for its warm, welcoming and inclusive ethos and commitment to high academic standards. Across our learning community we create a happy and caring environment where all children are valued and encouraged to achieve their very best, whatever their individual needs. The dedicated and talented staff at Moira Primary School and Nursery Unit work effectively to help children become independent, confident and life-long learners through a range of exciting opportunities. Forest School helps build our pupils' confidence and benefits mental and physical health. We aim to expand our Forest School programme across other year groups.
