Gaisce 2018 update

TCS Gaisce 2018

On the 8th May 2018, 13 TY students headed off on their Gaisce Adventure Trip. Over the year, students taking part in the Gasice Programme had taken up activites in the areas of voluntary work, developing a skill and working on their physical activity. This Gaisce adventure was the final step in their Gaisce journey. We set off for Lough Tay in Co Wicklow and from there, set off on our climb through the Wicklow mountains. With good weather and enthusiasm on our side we reached the top of Djouce mountain with some amazing views as our reward. That evening we reached Knock Rí hostel where we had a well-earned rest for the evening. The TYs were then faced with the task of working together to prepare a lovely meal of spaghetti bolognese for the group! The next day, we continued on with our hike, making our way from the hostel all the way back to Marley Park in Dublin. Muscles and feet were starting to ache but the students persevered and arrived back having completed a 40km hike over the two days! It certainly was a trip that tested endurance but left us with lots of great memories too. Well done to all involved.  Pics
