6th Year Trip to London September 2017
TY Trip to Berlin February 2017
85 Students and 7 teachers spent 5 days in Berlin in February 2017, where we visited the Reichstag,many museums, did loads of walking and generally had a great time. Probably the most poignant visit was to the concentration camp at Sachsenhausen just outside the city.
- 2nd Year: The second years have travelled to many parts of Europe over the past few years including France, Italy, Germany, Spain and the UK. In recent years the 2nd year trip has focused on Spain and provides students with the opportunity to practice their language skills.
- TY: Transition year students have the opportunity for at least one foreign trip during the year. Transition Year students have been in Paris, the UK and Strasbourg and most recently Italy. Read the account of the TY trip in Italy in February 2012 TY Italy Trip 2012
- Other: Many subjects such as Geography, History, English and Biology also organise field trips during the school year. These have included theatre trips to Cork, ecology outings to Killarney National Park and Ballybunion and historical locations such as the Bridewell inTarbert.
It is no surprise that amongst the memories students carry from school, very often the highlights are associated with school trips: life on the bus, the sharing of rooms, a chance to get to know teachers in another environment and of course the educational experience!
