The daffodils opened this week and now the garden is looking even better than ever in the sunshine. The students use the garden every day. They run, walk, drive wheelchairs or arc pushed around the maze. To one side a group of boys are always kicking a football or taking turns with the basketball hoop. We have finally managed to persuade the boys that balls should not be kicked up on the roof or the tree. Last month somebody through a circular hoop around a branch of the tree and there was great excitement for two days as every pupil and member of staff tried to get it down. As you know we are involved in the Cork Music Generation Project and on Tuesday last we had a visit from members of this year’s Common Purpose Team. I couldn’t be here myself on the day but Mary O’Hanlon tells me that the daffodils bloomed that morning!
Our visitors witnessed first hand the joy that the garden has brought to the pupils and staff of our school.
We hope you’ll ‘drop in’ some day when your passing and see how lovely it’s all looking.
