On tour with the girls of St Mary’s Macroom


Last week, St. Mary’s Transition Year students traveled to Kilfinane Outdoor Education Center in County Limerick for two full days of activity and escape.

They were accompanied by Mrs. Collins, assistant director and Mrs. Collins, professor of home economics. The students spent two great days filled with fun and laughter.

Upon arrival, the age group was divided into four teams and each cohort took part in various activities which were rotated.

All were well received by the students and we know everyone would love to return in the future.

The activities were led and supervised by the instructors who were so kind and welcoming.

The instructors were Matt, Chris, Liam, John, Éadaoin and Maureen. It was agreed by all that these leaders were superb and made the TY girls experience even better.

The students stayed at the activity center for the night. It was a great opportunity to bond with their old classmates and make new friends.

There is no doubt that these trips allow people to relax and focus on their well-being rather than their studies and school worries.

A great way to relax and focus on the present rather than the past or the future.

Trips like these wouldn’t happen without our TY Coordinator and Assistant Manager Ms Collins, so a word of thanks to her.

TYs are excited to have access to these facilities again and look forward to more throughout the school year.
