04/02/2009 ENVIRONMENTAL TRAIL OPENS AT LORETO COLLEGE COLERAINE

The start of the 2009 Spring Term saw the opening of the new Environmental Trail in the grounds of Loreto College Coleraine, Specialist School.

Developed in conjunction between the College’s Science Department and the Conservation Volunteers as part of the Specialist School initiative, the environmental trail allows students, staff and visitors to the school to explore and appreciate the plants and wildlife to be seen on the College’s extensive campus. 

In early January, the Trail was visited by a group of pupils from St John’s Primary School Coleraine, St Malachy’s Primary School Coleraine and St Colum’s Primary School Portstewart. The students were guided around the trail by sixth form students from Loreto College, who helped them to complete a number of exercises to familiarise themselves with the facility. 

With the motto of “The World is our Classroom”, the Environmental Trail was constructed with the aim of raising students’ awareness of the learning to be done in the natural environment which surrounds us all.
