Here at Holy Cross Girls' Primary School we love to extend our learning to the outdoors. We are currently working with the Northern Ireland Forest School Association to become an accredited Forest School with 6 of our teachers from the Foundation Stage right through to Key Stage 2 working towards becoming Forest School Level 3 Leaders. 

A Forest School is

“A child-centred inspirational learning process, that offers opportunities for holistic growth through regular sessions. It is a long-term program that supports play, exploration and supported risk taking. It develops confidence and self-esteem through learner inspired, hands-on experiences in a natural setting.”

In everyday terms this means that our children have the opportunity to use our school's wonderful outdoor spaces to experience everything from campfire cooking and den making to gardening and nature spotting with a lot more in between!

Have a look at our photos for just a taste of our Forest School sessions so far and watch this space to see how we develop our Forest School further!
