We have a well constructed polytunnel on the school grounds which the Gardening Committee take great care of. A wide range of flowers and vegetables are on show which the children can visit and see on a regular basis.

The Gardening Committee is as follows;

  • Mary O’Sullivan
  • Debbie O’Donovan
  • Mary Bond
  • Aideen O’Donovan
  • Collette Hall
  • Odharnait Donohoe
  • Julie Roche
  • Julia O’Riordan
  • Mary Buckley


Last October, the Gardening Committee harvested all the tomatoes in the polytunnel with the help of all the children. The tomatoes were cooked in school and some homemade chutney was raffled off to all the classes. It was a great success for all the children.

Thanks to all the parents of the Gardening Committee for your time and dedication.

Attached is a presentation compiled by Mary Buckley showcasing the polytunnel and garden.
