Transition Year

The two Transition Year groups have settled well to their tasks: mini-companies, community care, car & road safety workshop etc and they also enjoyed their first outing of the year in Killaloe last Friday. They went to the Killaloe Activity Centre where they participated in all kinds of land and water sports and for once the weather looked down kindly on them!

There were four teams in all from each country: Under 12, Under 14, Under 18 and a Senior team.
