Culinary Trip to Italy: October Mid-term break 2016

During the October mid-term break, 37 second year students travelled to Italy on a Culinary Skills Trip. On the trip they visited Rome and saw all the tourist sites before travelling to Sorrento on the Almafi Coast. They visited a coffee bean roasting factory, a honey farm, a mozzarella cheese farm, an olive farm, a pastry kitchen and, of course, a gelatoria. In the evenings, they went to Alexia Cookery school where the girls learned how to make pizza, pasta and gnocchi. They also went on an amazing trip on the Almalfi Coast and had their very own private boat trip on the coastal region. On their return journey back to Rome, they went to see Pompeii where the girls had a history lesson. It was a great trip. Thanks to Ms Crowley, Ms Ní Mhuineacháin and Ms A O' Neill for coming along. They hope the 2nd years really enjoyed it. Finally, thank you to Saffron Travel who organised the accommodation, flights and bookings.

Language Trip: Paris April / May 2016

A group of 1st and 2nd years spent the May Bank Holiday weekend in Paris and had a packed itinerary. They had a magnificent view of Paris from the second floor of la Tour Eiffel, took selfies in front of la Joconde in the Louvre, had a lovely trip down the Seine in a bateau-mouche, shopped for lunch in a supermarché and ate it in the Tuilerie gardens, took a funicular up to Montmartre, explored the Sacré Coeur and the Place du Tertre, went to a sung Mass in Notre-Dame de Paris, had caricatures drawn in front of the Centre Pompidou, posed in front of the Arc de Triomphe in La Défense, ate on the Champs Elysées, bargained for keyrings and stuffed toys everywhere, strolled throught the gardens in Versailles and had a great time in Disneyland.

The girls were accompanied on the trip by Ms Higgins, Ms Fullam, Ms O'Connell and Ms O'Neill.
