Listening Background: We are an active eco-school and have a brilliant outdoor classroom that we regularly use. This was created by Conservation Volunteers. We wanted to become part of the Northern Ireland Forest School community and applied for funding through the Forest School Awards in 2016/17. We were lucky enough o secure funding with training happening at Sixmilewater.

Forest Forest School setting: Sixmilewater is a wonderful mixture of natural and man-made habitats.The river itself is a fantastic resource and there is extensive mature woodland. We also have a fantastic outdoor classroom in our school grounds.
