Mountrath aims high for Gaisce

Transition Year students in Mountrath CS travelled to the picturesque terrain of the Wicklow mountains recently to complete their Gaisce Medal challenges of a 26km mountain hike, archery and tree climbing.

“It was a great sense of achievement to complete the hikes, and the views from the summit was well worth it,” said Emma Hennessy.

The students got further in touch with their inner Bear Gyrlls by later building a large campfire and enjoying a fireside singalong.

“The campfire and singalong was great fun after all the endurance challenges,” said Ryan Flynn.
