Visit to Lough Key Forest Park – 2nd Class Tour

Tours No Comments »

Second class had very enjoyable visit to Lough Key Forest Park yesterday.

They had a very busy day. When they arrived they took a boat trip with Danny and captain Liz out on Lough Key.

On this journey all children spotted swans ,cygnets and even a fish jumping out of the water. We came across Teddy Bear island and Trinity island . Danny pointed out many crannogs on the lake.

After we moored the boat at the pier, we enjoyed a lovely picnic in the large park area. Afterwards , we had a chance to feed the nearby ducks who cleverly got the scent of food and were very eager to get some breadcrumbs. Sadhbh had a big bag of bread and she was big in demand!

When we later went into the centre, we were met by our guides Hugh and Rachel,who very kindly gave us a guided tour through the tunnels all the way to Moylurg Tower.It stands in the place of Rockingham House which was burned down over fify years ago.

We climbed all the way to the top of the tower, over 100 steps. We had a fabulous view of the park and the lake.

Then we walked all the way back along the tree canopy walk to the centre.

We then had a chance to play on the slides,zip wire, and balancing activities in the Adventure Play Kingdom. It was great fun.

Unfortunately , the rainfall got heavier and our time there was cut short. However, all in all we had a very happy and pleasant day.Thank you to our parents and to everyone who made it so enjoyable.

Keeping Active is Number 1!!!😊

Be Water Wise!

The summer holidays are a wonderful time of the year filled with possibilities but also many hidden dangers. It is vital that everyone takes great care around bodies of water such as the swimming pool on holidays, rivers and lakes. We have been learning about the rules to respect when it comes to water and decided to put these messages into poster form. Visit http://www.iws.ie/ for more information.

 

 

Best day ever!

Glorious weather made our rescheduled 5km a joy for all participants today. Thank you to Keelan for training our students over the last six weeks. It was a welcome break from the classroom for all. Well done to all students and teachers who persevered and completed the challenge of running 5km. We hope now that students will be inspired to develop a habit of regular exercise throughout their lives.
