A new outdoor sensory classroom has been opened at a small national school in a remote mountainous area of County Waterford. The teachers, pupils, past pupils and families at Kilbrien National School have delivered the attractive facility through a huge community effort supported by the Waterford site of Sanofi, a global healthcare leader.

Martin Delaney, Principal, Kilbrien N.S., said: “Learning through play is very, very important and there’s been a huge emphasis on Aistear, it’s a curriculum where children learn through play. We said that this could be incorporated into a new outdoor classroom.

Clair Daly who’s one of our parents here works with Sanofi was also very enthusiastic about it and suggested that Sanofi would be willing to become involved.

It’s of huge benefit to the children, especially in the junior classes for a start. Children learn through play. This would be role-play, especially developing their social skills. They can be ‘acting’ you could say but acting real-life situations and this is such a nice environment to do this outside.

“We’re absolutely thrilled and delighted that Sanofi came on board.”
