Discussion Background: Hollybank Primary School initially participated in NIFSA Forest School programmes in 2009. Mr Fletcher wanted to develop Forest School activities throughout all of the school. NIFSA training began in 2017 with the P2 and P6 teachers.

Good Forest School setting: Hollybank Primary School is located very close to Monkstown Wood. However, there is a wonderful wooded area on the premises where the pupils can explore and be creative without having to go too far.
