42 transition year students participating in their Gaisce bronze award undertook their hike last Thursday and Friday.

They hiked over 30 kilometres setting out from the beautiful Lough Dan in Glendalough, up over the Wicklow mountains and meeting up with the Wicklow Way walk.

It was tough terrain to hike especially with recent heavy rainfall and large areas of bog but the students showed great resilience and stuck it out leaving no one behind.

Students had some down time with swimming, archery, tree climbing and finishing off with a camp fire sing song toasting our marshmallows!

A great trip overall. Well done to all involved.

Thanks to Ms Gallagher, Mr Carey and Mr Phelan for accompanying the students on their hike.
