L’ÉCOLE DE LA FORÊT

L’école Tir Na Nog fait le pari que l’enseignement peut se faire dehors, en forêt et ce pour le plus grand bien-être des jeunes. Voici une école alternative où l’apprentissage se fait en forêt, où on apprend à se bâtir un monde, certes, mais aussi à compter, à lire, bref à comprendre la terre et sa nature. C’est l’école en forêt!

The Tir na nOg Forest School makes the bet that education can be done outside, in the forest, for the greater well-being of young people. This is an alternative school where learning is done in the forest, where you learn to build a world, certainly, but also to read, to understand the earth and its nature. It's school in the forest!
