Thanks to all at CP Adventure. Our Transitions Years had a wonderful time and while there were many restrictions and precautions due to the current situation all enjoyed the day out. In fact due to the number of students in Transition Year, we had to divide them into two groups and go on two separate days. Three bus loads of students and lots of fun and new friendships made. Thanks to the teachers who organised the event and accompanied the students...Click on the heading for photos.
Our First Years enjoyed a brilliant day out in Leisure Max organised by our superb Meitheal Team. The students enjoyed bowling, laser tag, absailing and climbing.

Huge thanks to our Meitheal Leaders who put in a big effort in planning and organising the day from booking the venue to organising the buses. Lots of fun had by everyone.

On Monday the Sixth Year Geography students travelled to Kippure, Co. Wicklow to carry out experiments in the river Liffey for their Leaving Certificate Geography Project.

The project will be worth points for their final Leaving Certificate Geography exam.
