Our school was delighted to welcome Paula McIntyre who came to visit our school Polytunnel. Paula met with some of our pupils who had been in school over lockdown. She took away some of our tomatoes and is going to make some delicious chutneys in aid of charity.

Paula is a regular contributor to Radio Ulster, works for a range of well known food companies and she currently writes a weekly column in the Farming Life. Paula is currently involved in the Swell project in Portrush.

Thank you Paula for taking the time to meet with our pupils who have been working in our school Polytunnel over lockdown.
