Geography Field Trip

The 6th years as part of their Geography Leaving Certificate course went on a field trip to Kippure Estate, Co.Wicklow. Here they put many skills they learned in the classroom into practice. They used various pieces of equipment to carry out a variety of investigations along the course of the River Liffey. They then spent some time analysing and writing up their results. It was a very enjoyable day for all!

Fire Service Visit

As part of geography class and learning about members in the community Ms Mac Hale and Ms O'Carroll invited the fire service to our school. Ms Mc Donnell and class 1C also attended the visit as part of their health and safety class. The fire fighters came to the school with their fire truck and gave the class a tour of all the different equipment. Every member of the class was given a turn with the fire hose. The fire fighters explained their duties and responsibilities. It was really enjoyable and both classes loved the opportunity to see all the equipment first hand.
