‘Deer Sir’ in Killenard School

Over local 400 children go wild for deer

Scoil Naomh Eoin in Killenard, Co. Laois is the latest, and with over 400 students, the largest school to receive the deer module for schools. The module is tailored for primary school children between the ages of 5 – 12 years and covers wild deer species found in Ireland.

The module is designed to educate and to cultivate the type of awareness and appreciation that simply cannot be taught from a textbook. The module is full of facts and trivia on deer and encourages interaction with the students, it is delivered in a fun and relaxed style.

Children are our conscience of the future and it is important that they understand the importance of our wild deer from an early age. If your local school would like to have the module presented, please contact us on wilddeerireland@gmail.com. The presentation is ideal for school in areas where deer are common.

We would like to thank school principal Alice O Connor and all the teachers and of course our own member Brian Yarrow who all helped arrange the day.
