On 30th April our 11th Class students went on an overnight excursion to Co. Wicklow and Co. Kilkenny, a new Geography expedition introduced into the curriculum this year.
The trip was a great success and gave our students an in-depth understanding of geographical features. The students visited three waterfalls in different stages of their cycles and got to see first-hand how different rocks produce distinctive landscapes.
Such trips provide practical experience of theory learned in the classroom.
The group, accompanied by Mr. Higgins and Mr. Swaine, visited Powerscourt Waterfall, Glenmacnass Waterfall and Glendalough on the first day. After an overnight stay in Kilkenny City, they visited the Dunmore Caves the next morning where they not only learned about their geographical value but also about the myths and legends surrounding the caves.
