Year of Forest School accreditation:
Background: Astoria Kindergarten is located within the grounds of Gilnahirk Primary School. We have always been passionate about getting our pupils outside. The opportunity came up in 2016/17 to apply for a Forest School Award to undertake formal Forest School Leader training with NIFSA. We were lucky enough to secure funding and went through the training.
Forest School setting: We undertook the formal Forest School training in Tullycarnett Park. The Park is just outside the side gate of the school. We also have a wonderful wooded area within the school grounds that we have developed for Forest School activities.
