Places to Visit

Ballyhoura Outdoor Classroom


Location: Co. Limerick.

A visit to a Ballyhoura Outdoor Classroom is likely to be a special treat for a class, maybe once a year or once a term, and is an opportunity to bring some extra excitement to a particular part of the curriculum. 

We have developed lesson-plans that teachers can use to teach selected parts of the school syllabi. For example, we are an accredited national Discover Primary Science and Maths centre. Teachers may select from these tried and tested lessons or alternatively plan and deliver their own lessons. All fieldtrips are self-guided by the visiting school. We anticipate that once a class has studied at a Ballyhoura Outdoor Classroom, that they will be eager to return and either build upon their learning in that subject area or study a different part of the school curriculum in the natural environment. 

Training in the use of Ballyhoura Outdoor Classrooms is available for teachers throughout the year.
