Tydavnet Group Water Scheme based at Knocknagrave School Environmental Education Centre is working with 9 schools north and south of the border to deliver an environment conservation project on Sliabh Beagh blanket bog. This week was the turn of St Joseph’s Knockatallon to have workshops facilitated by Daniel Monaghan. Starting on the weeks commencing 16th/23rd/30th May each school group will have a four hour trip to the mountain to visit the peatland habitat of Sliabh Beagh and put their learning into practice. Here they will gather evidence for their school project in the form of photos, sculptures, maps, stories, poetry, and pictures. The whole Sliabh Beagh schools project is linked to curriculum areas, and is very valuable learning in relation to the link between the bog, water supply, and climate change. Please “like” and share the new “Friends of Sliabh Beagh” Facebook and Twitter pages to follow this project. The project is supported by the INTERREG VA programme managed by the SEUPB.
