Our 4th and 5th classes went on a hike around Ticknock last week and 6th class climbed to Prince William’s Seat the previous week. 6th class were bathed in brilliant sunshine and enjoyed amazing views of Dublin, Wicklow and beyond. 4th and 5th were shrouded in a thick mist and could barely see the path beneath them! Both groups had a fantastic time and both hikes will live long in the memory.

We have a long tradition of hiking in the school and it is always one of the best days of the year when a class gets to go on a hike. Apart from the fun and exercise involved in hiking, the boys learn so much about nature, geography and history on these special days out in the wild.
