Partnering Children on their Developmental Journey

Hike Life!


On Thursday May 29th, Fifth and Sixth Class headed outdoors in keeping with our commitment to outdoor learning. They set out from school and walked to Carrigmeal Woods where they enjoyed the fantastic views from the viewing point. From Carrigmeal they headed east through Dysart Woods where they enjoyed an incredible “ nature bath “ amongst the bluebells. A well earned picnic, a magical round of hide and seek and the spectacular views back over Ratheniska completed a super hike . Returning by Grange, they stopped at the Togher for more chats and a drink. A great experience and a wonderful memory .
