Transition Year trip to Killary Adventure Centre
At the end of March, seventy St. Kilian's TY students enjoyed a fabulous three-day trip to Killary Adventure Centre in Leenane, County Galway. The students were accompanied by their Year Head, Mr Fitzpatrick, TY Coordinator, Mr Kelly, Ms Murray, Ms Ryan and Ms McGuinness.
The students took part in water and land-based activities including the infamous "Turf Challenge", the centre piece of the RTE programme, "Ireland's Fittest Family", which was filmed in Killary late last year. Other activities that the students tried were the giant swing, the rope bridge, kayaking, gorge walking and the trapeze swing. They went on a long trek at night and had a table quiz and other games to keep them busy and entertained in the evenings.
The students thoroughly enjoyed the trip and their behaviour and good humour was exemplary. Everyone commented that it was the high point of the year so far, as it proved to be a great bonding and fun experience for everyone concerned.
Thanks to the excellent staff at Killary Adventure Centre and to the teachers, who excelled by getting ‘down and dirty’ trying many of the difficult challenges themselves.
Well done Mr. Kelly for organising such a wonderfully rewarding and enjoyable trip for our 4th Years. They really had a fantastic time!
