Artist in the Classroom

Exploring -Biodiversity

September 2016- A new school year.

Biodiversity – Artist in the Classroom and Green Flag

I am delighted to welcome Brigid Teehan ( Mannion) as an Artist in the Classroom to work with me this year.


Brigid will complete 50 hours of artistic  work with both the Junior and Senior children.The theme for the work is Biodiversity , focusing on Bees as Pollinators. Already Brigid with keen helpers Karen Conlon,   Katia Hunter and Mieke Brosan                                                                img_14171img_14261

have made Harvest Crowns  to compliment the performance of the Wiggly Waggly Worm song for the Harvest Service. The children collected lots of greenery and had great fun arranging it on their cardboard crowns.

For the second project the children  collected crab apples. The Hunter family made apple jelly with them and Brigid helped the children print labels for the jam jars using half of a crab apple. It was exciting to see the patterns that could be made with the apples.img_14281
