Primary school to receive £1k for heritage

LONDONDERRY primary school Craigbrack’s after school club is to benefit from £1k to assist with a natural heritage study in the Faughan Valley.

Pupils at Craigbrack have just signed up as a Faughan Valley Wildlife Club with the Faughan Valley Landscape Partnership.

On Monday, January 21 at 3.30pm the resource kit will be handed over to the Craigbrack Wildlife Club by Mayor Kevin Campbell on behalf of the Faughan Valley Landscape Partnership.

Dr Declan Lawlor, volunteer leader of the Craigbrack Primary School’s after school club said: “This is a great boost for our afterschool science club and will tie in well with the school curriculum. It is very exciting for the children to receive this equipment and it will encourage more interest in science from the pupils.”

Mrs Kirk, Principal of Craigbrack Primary School, said: “I am delighted that our pupils are able to participate in this exciting and very relevant initiative.

“I would like to thank Faughan Valley Landscape Partnership for the extremely generous provision of resources which will ensure the enjoyment of learning takes place where it should - in meaningful, interactive, real life contexts.”

Annie Mullan, Community Engagement Officer with Faughan Valley Landscape Partnership said: “There will be continual support, advice and assistance with club activities.

“This is a great opportunity for children to take part in outdoor adventures and gain skills to become the ecologists of the future.”
