Minister for Education and Skills Joe McHugh has said a planned sensory garden for Woodlands NS in Letterkenny will do wonders for the entire school community.
“The idea of Woodlands NS in Letterkenny to create a sensory garden is brilliant and I am glad the Department of Education and Skills is supporting it,” Minister McHugh said.
“It isn’t everyday we are able to give the green light for something like this. It is a real bonus for all the pupils, as well as the staff and I have no doubt that it will leave a long and lasting impression on everyone associated with the school.”
The garden project has been approved by the Department’s Building Unit under its Additional Accommodation programme.
Minister McHugh said: “We hear a lot about wellbeing, both in life and in education these days, and I’m sure a space like this will give everyone connected to the school a lift every time they see it.
“Best of luck to the school and to principal Patricia Slevin for having the foresight to see the benefits that a sensory garden can bring.”Tags:
