I spent a great day in St Pauls Slievemore Primary School planting Daffodils with the entire School, we planted close on a 1000 daffodil bulbs in the school grounds. It was a mighty day and it was great to have the company of every class from p1-7 come out and plant as many bulbs as each could. We planted the bulbs en masse around the car park areas so visitors to the school next spring will be dazzled by the daffodils for years to come...this is all working towards my challenge of planting 10000 bulbs with Housing Executive this Autumn....and we're getting there!!
My thanks to School Principal Catrina McPheely for helping to make this event possible and to Patrick Duddy from Housing Executive for his on going support with this Bulb Planting initiative.....and most of all thansks to all the kids in St Pauls for a really enjoyable day....and when you look at the pics above its hard to believe these were all taken after they have been planting....not one kid clabbered in muck....
