Our Forest School
Here at Kilcolgan Educate Together we are very proud to have two trained Forest School leaders and wonderful parent volunteers who work with Second Class to deliver outdoor education through Forest School. It takes place in our beautiful surrounding woodlands every second Friday. Forest school encourages and supports the development of confidence and self-esteem, social skills, motivation, concentration and physical skills. It complements the Outdoor and Adventure Strand of the PE curriculum and our journey to achieve our Active Flag. You can check out their adventures by clicking below.
