Annual sponsored walk in sunshine
The annual sponsored walk took place in glorious sunshine on Friday 28th September. Students and teaching staff alike took on the 10 kilometres, along Tonlegee Road, Springdale Road and down Watermill Road onto Clontarf Road. From here, they had a lovely stroll along the coast road before the long climb back up Vernon Road and Brookwood Avenue towards the school. Many availed of the coast wall to have a little rest or took a breather at the Wooden Bridge crossing.
A great number of runners turned out, led down the school avenue by Mr McGonigle, Ms Heron, Ms Bradley, Ms O’ Brien, Mr Sheridan and Mr Greene. Competition was tight, especially up the difficult Vernon Hill climb. The top 3 places went to:
1. B Baci 6.3 44min56s
2. H. Gardner 5.2 46min02s
3. Mr Greene 47min05s
Thankfully everybody made it back safely to the school and enjoyed the beautiful day out and break from classes.
