Our Transition Years enjoyed the good weather on their two day trip to Causey Farm near Slane, Co. Meath. The students took part in everyday farming activities including milking cows and baking bread. This was a fantastic team-building activity, which included a trip to the Hill of Tara and Slane Castle, stopping off at 'Funtasia' on the way home. Many thanks to the TY tutors, Year Head and teachers who accompanied them on the trip.
