Geography & Science Trip

The whole school went to Manch Woods for a Geography & Science trip. They did a mini-beast hunt, animal hunt and pond dip. It was great fun.


On Thursday 4th of April the whole school travelled to the Long Strand for an orienteering day out. The senior side of the school completed a trail through the woods, while the junior side played map games on the beach. Everyone then took part in an orienteering competition in the dunes and we all returned to the Fish Basket for some delicious refreshments. It was a great day out!

The whole school visited Darrara Agricultural College to see what life on the farm is like during springtime.  Everyone had an enjoyable day.  Thanks so much to Karen Lehane for organising the trip. e
