PUPILS from two local schools have helped to launch the Tesco-sponsored Schools’ Trail initiative which will feature at this year’s Balmoral Show.
Children from Rathcoole Primary and Hazelwood Integrated Primary joined representatives from Tesco and the Balmoral Show recently to promote the trail, which will offer children the opportunity to learn about food and farming in a fun and interactive way.
This year’s trail will take the children around the showgrounds at the King’s Hall on a 13-stop journey during which they will visit lots of fun attractions, learn about livestock and discover where their food comes from.
The interactive guided tour will last approximately 90 minutes and pre-booking is necessary to avoid disappointment.
Caoimhe Mannion, Tesco Marketing Manager said: “We are delighted to sponsor the Schools’ Trail at the Balmoral Show again, and hope that it will help schoolchildren understand the importance of the local food economy, as well as Tesco’s role in it.”
This year, organisers have introduced the Balmoral Bunny colouring-in competition. Two primary schools will have the chance to win 10,000 Tesco for Schools and Clubs vouchers each, which can be used towards computer, sports or electrical equipment.
The Balmoral Show, in partnership with Ulster Bank, will run from the 16 - 18 May at the King’s Hall complex, Belfast.
