Background: We were successful in securing a Forest School Award from Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council in 2018/19. We used Cairnshill Playing Fields for our Forest School training.
Forest School setting: School Motto: Shaping Tomorrow, Today. The Forest School ethos helps us achieve this. Cairnshill Primary School is a warm, friendly and caring school, where the needs of the children always come first. We aim to provide a happy, safe and secure environment where each child can reach their full potential. The school aims are as follows: To ensure that every pupil is treated fairly and with equal value and respect To help pupils develop the ability to work hard and to succeed To promote independence but appreciate the importance of working with others To ensure that all pupils develop a sense of self-respect, self-confidence and self-reliance; and an awareness of and a sensitivity to the needs of others To develop a reasoned set of personal attributes, values and beliefs; and understanding of the world and their place in it; and a respect for the religious and moral values of others To ensure that pupils have the skills, knowledge and understanding to prepare them for the next stage of their education and life
