Our School has a Polytunnel since 2018.  A Polytunnel committee is formed each year with a selection of enthusiastic students from TY.  They completely manage the planting of seeds, maintenance and harvesting a wide range of vegetables such as onions, spinach and carrots to name a few.  They connect with the local primary schools and community projects in our town.   

Our hardworking and dedicated committee this year is Dylan Weir Norris, Dylan Magee, Killian Heavin, Kian Brady, Adam Cullinane, Simon Bradly, Ciaran Murphy and Aaron Hanevy.   Recently they visited Patsy McCormack and Johnny Doran in Moate Men’s Shed to see their polytunnel’s winter vegetable garden and crafts.   

To further raise awareness of the polytunnel’s endeavours of encouraging growing your own organic produce, they are spearheading a competition in the school for 1st year to TY students to produce and sell their own healthy and nutritious snack in our school canteen!
