That evening the girls cooked their own meals in groups and displayed high standards of cookery skills. They stayed in the youth hostel in Muckross with a third of the students camping outside in the glorious weather. The challenge was the first task completed in order for the students to receive the Gaisce President’s Award.  


   

Fifth Year Students Climb Carrauntoohil

Fifth Year students in St.Brigid's started their senior school year on a high with a hike into the Hag's Glen and a climb up Ireland's tallest mountain ,Carrauntoohil.

They were accompanied by their year head and teachers and  guided by climbers from Kerry Climbing who ensured that  students arrived at the peak safely.

Conditions were ideal for climbing and the girls were exhilarated when they scaled the top.
