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. The highlight was definitely trying to get the waders on and off!!! It was a very enjoyable day for all!
