The Grandparents Tree


On Tuesday last we planted the Grandparents Tree. This was presented to the school by the Castleknock Grandparents Committee. The tree is really special as committee member, John Mc Cullen grafted three different species of apple onto it. These represent the three generations, Grandparent, parent and child. Our third classes all assembled to listen to John and see the tree being planted. Maybe someday i’ll the distant future they will visit this tree as a grandparent!

We also want to thank Mrs. Margaret Brady , our neighbour, who has planted lots of flowers in the garden this year. We are especially delighted that it is now an oasis for honey bees 🐝 which we know are becoming endangered.
