Bronze Gaisce Hike


On the 12th and 13th of March a group of Transition and 5th Year students completed the Bronze Gaisce Hike. On the first day we were accompanied by Ms. Dooley and Mrs. Liston. We started our hike from the school and went up to the Holy Year Cross and continued on into Ballymacarbry to the Community Centre, covering a total of 18km. We stayed at the Community Centre overnight and got a bus the next morning to the starting point for the day. We were accompanied this day by Ms. Dooley, Ms. Hally and Ms. Gainford, with our destination being The Gap,having covered a total of 13km in the day. We then got the bus back to the community centre where our parents were waiting to collect us. We had a great weekend with lovely weather and lots of fun. We would like to thank Michael who was our guide for the weekend, the teachers that came with us and most of all Ms. Dooley for organising this hike and making the weekend possible (and also for her provision of barley sugars)
