Northern Ireland Forest School Awards

Northern Ireland Forest School Awards (NIFSA) is an outdoor learning activity that aims to encourage school pupils to visit and take on an ownership of their local council park.

Schoolchildren are able to undertake innovative activities to help them understand the importance of the natural environment and local heritage. Teachers and school staff involved are able to undertake a Forest School Leader OCN Level 3 qualification.
