  3. Cork County Council Announces Funding for Leave No Trace Primary School Workshops

With the current global pandemic, the delivery of school’s programmes continues to face significant challenges. That’s why Cork County Council have partnered with Leave No Trace to offer live online learning opportunities for schools.

Delivered by experienced accredited Leave No Trace Ireland Trainers, students will benefit from fun, interactive sessions promoting responsible use of the outdoors. The workshops will empower students to make the right decisions in the outdoors and give them the tools to tackle issues in their local community. By incorporating Leave No Trace practices into the curriculum, teachers can integrate science, maths, language, arts, history, and more into one rich lesson or activity while still satisfying numerous national curriculum standards in all subject areas. Leave No Trace Ireland education is closely aligned to the national curriculum and An Taisce’s Green School Programme.

The online workshops are 40 minutes duration with time for Q&As to maintain engagement from students. Before workshops are delivered to students, a pre-workshop call, to brief the teacher and outline the course programme will take place. This brief will advise of any materials needed in advance and outline the session. By using blended learning, Leave No Trace Ireland Trainers engage with students using interactive activities (quizzes, poster competitions), YouTube videos, and live Zoom presentations to bring the material to life.

If you are based in Cork and would like your school to be involved, email training@leavenotraceireland.org for more details.
