St. Laurence N.S., Grange Road, Baldoyle, Dublin 13
We are in the top twenty primary schools in Ireland in SEAI’s current “One Good Idea” competition for our idea, “Forest Are”; we are growing a tiny 100 metre squared forest of native trees to encourage biodiversity. Our tiny foresters will hold a ceremonial tree planting on the day, sing some green songs, recite a forest poem all dressed in green and with a strong Irish language element to mark Seachtain na Gaeilge. Our aim is to encourage others to copy us; we have planted 2 "Forest Are's" so far and we are planning our third. Through our project SYMMETREE IRELAND, every tree we plant here, we plant another fruit tree in South Sudan or Tanzania through our partnerships.
