Getting Background: Holy Family and Currie Primary Schools have always sought ways to integrate together. The Forest School programme was the ideal opportunity for the two schools to meet on a regular basis and learn together. We began our Forest School training in 2015 with the World Around Us Co-Ordinator.

Leaf Forest School setting: We regularly use Alexandra Park in North Belfast for our Forest School sessions. The Park is divided in half by a "Peace Wall". It is a great area with natural woodlands and open spaces.
