World Mental Health Day

Well done to the 3A and 3B class who spent the day hiking in Ballyhoura. What better way to mark World Mental Health day than to blow off the cobwebs on top of Seefin Mountain!! In a year where minding our mental health has never been so important it was great to spend the day outdoors enjoying what Co Limerick has to offer. Good luck to the 3C and 3D classes who head off tomorrow

Here are some photos from the recent end of Transition Year trip to Cappanalea OEC. Over two days the transition participated in Kayaking, Windsurfing, Stand Up paddling and Raft Building. They camped out overnight, plenty of ghost stories were told around the camp fire while roasting marshmallows over the fire.

The Transition Year class recently began to wrap up their school year with a trip to Cappanalea Outdoor Education Centre. While there they camped out overnight and took part in a number of activities. The students spent most their time on the water, learning how to build rafts, kayaking, windsurfing, and stand up paddling, and in case this wasn’t enough some orienteering to stretch the legs. Despite the the best efforts of the ghost stories around the campfire everyone made it home safe and well!!!
