Year of Forest School accreditation:
Background: -We aim to provide an inclusive, caring and safe environment in which all children can grow in self-esteem, independence and confidence. Our care for the children enables their holistic development; spiritually, physically, intellectually, morally, emotionally and socially.
-The children are encouraged to maintain healthy lifestyles and we encourage healthy eating and exercise.
-We received funding from Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council in 2019/2020 to support us in training to become an accredited Forest School. Mr. Mussen has been taking part in the Forest School programme with his P7 class.
Forest School setting: St. Joseph's Primary School have been using the Parish garden to carry out their Forest School sessions. It has a mixture of trees, bushes and grass space.
