In the winter months (December, January & February), the National Park Education staff are available to visit primary schools throughout Co. Wicklow. Due to the high demand, visits are by invitation only. Each Co. Wicklow primary school should receive an invitation every four years. To check when your school is next scheduled for a visit, please ring the Education Centre (0404 45656).
