Opening of the New Sensory Garden, Knocknamanagh NS, Minane Bridge

The Opening of a new School Sensory Garden at Knocknamanagh National School took place in Minane Bridge on 26th October last and was attended by a number of parents and guests.

A sensory garden is a garden environment that is designed with the purpose of stimulating the senses through various plants, textures, scents, and features, providing a therapeutic and immersive experience for children of all ages and abilities.

Entertainment, with music and songs, was provided by the children who were accompanied by music teacher Conor O’Connell. The Opening Ceremony was then performed by pupils Conor Frawley and Charlotte Coleman.

During his speech, the principal, Con O’Callaghan said:

“The Sensory Garden is a wonderful addition to our school; it is a very inclusive space and is being enjoyed by all our pupils. We are already seeing the joy and learning benefits that the garden is bringing to everyone. I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Janssen, Sisk, PM Group and all those involved in the BioCork 3.2 Project. A special mention to Aine Moher and Kieran Lordan of PM Group, who co-ordinated the development of the garden and were so generous with their time and talents. It has been an amazing journey to see the months of hard work being brought to fruition”.
