Irish Trip :)

On Friday the 10th of May all Transition Year students went to Scoil Eanna in P.Pearse Museum in Rathfarnom. We got a tour of the museum and I found it very interesting learning about Irish history. We then went and watched a video about the history of the school and it was very interesting learning the school and the people who went there. After watching the video we got a tour of the gardens and learned about the trees that were in the garden. Unfortunately a lot of the trees are dying from different diseases and fungi, which is sad because these trees have been there for years.

These are some images from Scoil Eanna, P. Pearse Museum:

Swim a Mile :)

On Friday, all Transition Year and LCVP students went to the National Aquatic Centre for the annual 'Swim A Mile with a Smile'. When we arrived we were given a short talk about the day and then went to get changed. When we went out onto the bank we where put into our lanes. Everyone put in a great effort and we swam 27 miles in total. After our swimming we went to Blanchardstown Shopping Centre. We went for our lunch and then went for a luck around the shops. Everyone had a great day and it was a lot of fun :)

Gaisce Hike :)

On the 26th of April 33 Transition Year students and three teachers went to the Wicklow Mountains for our Gaisce Hike. When we were on the bus, everyone was very excited for what was ahead of us. When we arrived at Kippure we brought our suitcases into a room and then started straight away on our hike. The hike took us about 3:30 hours. When we got back we were put into our houses. I was in a big house with 15 girls in it. I shared a room with Katie, Liz, Lisa, Shauna and Chanice and we had great fun. We ate our dinner with everyone in our living room and stayed up late talking to everyone. We woke up early Saturday morning and ate our breakfast  Everyone was busy getting ready for the hike and packing their bags. We headed out for our long hike which took us 5 hours. On the bus home it was much quieter than on the way but everyone had a great weekend and were very proud of themselves.
