Background: Downshire Primary School is an active Eco-School and has achieved Green Flag status. Pupils from Downshire regularly visited Hillsborough Forest Park for different activities. The opportunity arose in 2017 to apply for the Forest School Awards supported by Lisburn and Castlereagh City Council. We were fortunate to be chosen.
Forest School setting: Downshire Primary School has extensive school grounds to undertake Forest School sessions. We also visited Hillsborough Play Park to undertake our Forest School training with NIFSA.
