Last week saw the beginning of TY Activity Tuesday in the school! It was a wonderful day of fun and laughter while exploring our majestic national park. We began with a tour of the exhibition area in Killarney House and Gardens which was truly magnificent. The students got the chance to explore and discover the beautiful diverse landscape of Killarney National Park. The 15 rooms to discover were highly entertaining and informative for the students. The latter part of the day we spent walking to Ross Castle and then back to the school. A great day of bonding for the students as the TY year has kicked off....
