School Tour/Challenge

This year we had a school tour with a twist. We turned our school tour into a sponsored school challenge which saw us cover the distance from Malin to Mizen in just a few short hours!!!
The whole school went to Farran woods where the younger classes completed a 1.7km orienteering trail and the older pupils trekked 3km, finding all the controls marked on their map along the way. After the Orienteering we picnic-ed outside before enjoying the fabulous new playground facilities at Farran. Many thanks to Seán Cotter of Cork Schools Orienteering Association who laid out the trail, set up the controls and provided the maps. The children all had a great day and raised over €2,500 for the school development fund!!!!! We are very grateful to everybody who sponsored a child for this challenge!
