Rossmar School special school in Limavady, housed in
purpose-built build-ings opened just over a year ago, has officially opened its new Sensory Garden in parallel with marking the Queen’s Jub-ilee.
The Friends of Rossmar School group has raised much needed funds to transform the grounds.
The new sensory garden is the latest addition to the outdoor playground facilities at the school.
It includes a unique piece of art in memory of Jacob Poston, who passed away last April.
David and Emma Poston live just outside Dungiven and Jacob attended the school since the age of three. He was a wonderful son, grandson, nephew and friend, always smiling and loved being out on the farm with his Dad in his special car seat in the John Deere Gator.
On Jacob’s sad passing money was raised in lieu of flowers. As he loved the outdoors it was fitting the money be spent on something the children could enjoy outside.
To provide a wider entrance for the new school, two massive Beech trees had to be felled.
Richard Kelly, from richard createsart.com, fashionbed the fell-ed trees into the fantastic Jacob’s Tree Hut.
