Biodiversity looks at steps which can be taken in schools to increase awareness of the importance of native plants, animals and habitats, and to increase species-richness in a locality.

Kilbride NS was awarded a Green Schools Flag for Biodiversity in 2021. This flag recognised:

  • a commitment to preserving and protecting the diverse range of habitats in our school grounds
  • excellent work in creating new habitats
  • the fostering of a caring attitude towards nature, and a sense of wonder about the natural world

Here are some interesting Biodiversity videos with fun activities for children and their families to try at home:
