Where they learnt how to grow a vegetable garden, pick vegetables, cook in the kitchen and serve food. Each student got to cook from scratch using the home grown vegetables from the garden. They made Potato and Leak Soup with bread rolls and home made butter, then in the afternoon they made Chicken Curry with rice and they made Naan bread to go with it and they finished off by making Chocolate Brownies.

What Scoil Pól Offers!
Scoil Pól provides the best of modern facilities:
Communication with Parents
Scoil Pól recognises that parents are the primary educators of their children and places great emphasis on regular communication with parents. We listen to parental concerns and work in close partnership with parents to ensure that students are cared for in a nurturing and supportive environment.
Small class sizes in Scoil Pól ensure individual attention and support excellence in teaching and learning.
"Students learn more and behave better when they receive high levels of understanding, caring and genuineness".
(Watkins and Thackery)
