This year we again participated in the Walk Around Ireland Challenge. Over 4 weeks each class committed to taking an Active Break every day and walking either around the school or around our pitches. Our Active Committee measured each circuit and noted that the school path is 167m long and the pitches are 325m long. The children committed enthusiastically to the challenge and walked their shoes off to reach lots of tourist attractions around Ireland.

Together we walked over 2700km. That is further than the distance from Caim to the Ukraine Border! Well done everyone.

On our journey we reached many exciting destinations in Ireland. We visited Centre Parks, The Cliffs of Moher, The Rock of Cashel, Killarney National Park, Spike Island, Cuilcagh Boardwalk, Tayto Park, The Titanic Museum Belfast, The Giant’s Causeway, The GPO, The Dunbrody Famine Ship, Ballinsloe, The Dunmore Caves, Vinegar Hill, The Hook Lighthouse and finally Dublin Zoo.

There was great excitement when we crossed the line to reach Dublin Zoo. Check out our pictures below!
