Volunteers wanted: We actively encourage our parents to get involved with our Forest School programme.
Background: We began our forest school journey in 2019 with funding from Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council. We are very fortunate to be within a short walk to the beautiful Castle Gardens. We undertook all our training in the Castle Gardens grounds.
At St Joseph s PS Lisburn we pride ourselves on providing a happy, secure learning environment for all of our pupils so that the academic, emotional, social and spiritual needs of every child are developed to their full potential.
Our Mission Statement is
S - Surround ourselves with a happy, secure learning environment for all.
J - Join together the home, school and the wider community.
P - Promote academic and cultural excellence amongst our pupils.
S - Support and provide for every individual.
Forest School setting: We have been developing the grounds at Castle Gardens for our forest school activity. The grounds are fantastic and have a huge variety of habitats - open spaces, mature woodland and hedgerows. A lovely place to learn.
