TYs on the slopes!

Posted on : January 16, 2018

This year our TY students have the great good fortune to be taken to the Italian Alps for their annual TY  school tour. The destination is Santa Caterina Valfurva, Italy. They left Sligo in the early hours of Sunday 14th January with a return time sometime in the early hours of Friday 19th January. Ski-ing lessons were organised for the mornings and afternoons each day,  with the evenings offering the opportunity to explore the town and try sledding and ice skating. With four full days of ski-ing under their belts the TY students should arrive home tired but happy! Thanks to Miss Finnerty, Miss Reddy, Mr Lynch and Mr Gavin for giving up their week to take the TYs to Italy.  See some photos HERE
