School Trip Tomorrow

The school trip to Adventure World at the University of Limerick takes place tomorrow for 3rd to 6th classes.

The bus will depart at 8 a.m sharp from the school and return at approximately 7 pm to the school.

Pupils can wear a tracksuit and suitable footwear.  They will also need to bring swim suit, swim cap and towel, old t-shirt, shorts and flip flops/old shoes.  A complete change of clothing for the return journey is also recommended.  Sun protection cream, 2 packed lunches, plenty of drinks, plastic bags [for wet gear], clothing and footwear.

The bus will be stopping at McDonalds on the way home so students need to bring a maximum of E10 to cover the cost of this meal.


Cycling lessons and road safety skills are continuing in the school for 3rd to 6th classes.  Everyone is enjoying the learning experience.
