Plant a Tree, Grow a School Launch
We're very excited to include the Launch Party for our inspiring Plant a Tree, Grow a School project at the WCSS Christmas Market. We’ll have a space at the Market where you can find out all about the Project - and how you can take part. You’ll have the opportunity to buy a tree for yourself - or as a gift for a friend or loved one. You can enter our raffle to take part in one of our Tree Planting days - and meet some of the staff, students and parents of WCSS. AND for the School’s Market Raffle we’re donating 5 tree plantings to a lucky winner.
In the meantime, check out the Project webpage to find out how you can take part - plant a native tree, help the environment and support self-directed, democratic learning at the West Cork Sudbury School (WCSS).
More details coming soon!
About West Cork Sudbury School (WCSS)
WCSS adopts a community approach to education, based on valuing students as inherent learners - students are given the freedom to develop and grow in their own direction and at their own speed as part of a wider community. Being a member of a democratic school comes with freedom to choose and the responsibility that this freedom entails.
This balance between freedom and responsibility is at the heart of West Cork Sudbury School.
As an independent school perhaps the biggest challenge we face is funding - as we are curriculum-free, we have no financial support from the state.
The multiple award-winning StreamScapes Project pioneered Schools’ & Community Engagement in Aquatic & Biodiversity Education from 1989, and since that time hundreds of schools and community groups in Communities throughout Ireland north and south, east and west have learned about their local Catchments through compelling classroom lessons and Field Trips to their local streams, rivers, lakes and seashores.
