Transition Year Trip to Clonea

Transition Years had a great time during their recent trip to Clonea!
Transition Year Trip to Clonea

Recently, the Ard Scoil na nDéise Transition Years started the year with a great trip to Clonea Beach. We headed off at half past nine with our Year Head Ms. Kirwan and our TY coordinator, Ms. Twomey. We were very lucky that the weather held up all day. It was even warm at times! It took us about two hours to get there, but it gave us all a great chance to catch up with friends that we haven’t seen since March. We took advantage of the Greenway, which is right on our doorstep. It has become increasingly popular amongst tourists, especially since the rise in staycations this summer!

When we arrived at Clonea, we all headed straight for the picnic tables for a much needed rest and a bite to eat! We all headed down to the beach, feeling replenished from our lunch. There were so many different activities available at the beach that everyone was enjoying themselves! A few girls were being creative and building sandcastles. Others were splashing in the freezing water. Some girls enjoyed a big, competitive game of rounders and hop-along where we spread out over the length of the beach. A lot of girls brought their hurleys and had a puck along the beach. At half two, we began to make our way back to school. But not before getting a 99 at the shop! The walk home certainly felt longer, but we took our time. The teachers made sure that everyone made it back for the end of school time and buses. It was a great way to start the year. I think everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day, and I know we all had a good sleep that night!
