Maynooth Forest School Project 2019

We have been having a wonderful time down in the woods of Maynooth University for the last 8 weeks, working with 3rd class from Gaelscoil Ui Fhiaich running a 10 week Forest School Programme. We have been building dens, putting up homemade swings, doing natural arts and crafts including nature journals, dream catchers, clay Easter eggs, climbing trees, making rafts, working with tools, singing songs, and spending a lot of quality time in nature getting to know, respect and love the local woodland.

We have been kindly supported by Kildare County Council through the Environment Deparment and Heritage Departments, with thanks to Dara Weir and Bridget Loughlin for their ongoing support.

  1. Hi. I’m just wondering what groups you are running in maynooth? I have a 5yr old and this maybe something we could look at for her. Thanks

    • Hi Sylvia, I am not running any forest school projects in Maynooth currently. I run an after school programme in Castletown House on Tuesday afternoons, but it is currently full and with a waiting list. If you want to send me on your email I can put you on file for future emails out regarding projects. Kind regards, Lucy Bell
