The 2010 – 2011 T.Y. group have had many trips and we wish to thank every one of the teachers that made such an effort to give up their own time to organise these for the group.
The class visited:
- Killaloe Outdoor and Adventure Centre
- Clarion Hotel (“Spagetti Show”)
- Thomand Park
- Mary Immaculate College Music Recital
- Hunt Museum
- Killfinane Outdoor Centre
The year has been an enlightening and exciting opportunity for all the class. Each individual has grown in maturity and have developed personal and social skills that will stand to them for many years ahead.
“They have been a fantastic group to work with and have been terrific ambassadors for the programme. Their commitment has made the year a success” – Kerrie Collins.
Desmond College Transition Year’s Hit London in Style
What an end to a brilliant year! The Desmond College Transition Year students left Shannon on the early morning flight on Tuesday 17th May, bound for London. And what a jam packed trip.
Seeing the sights of London – Buckingham Palace, Changing of the Guard, Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden, Piccadilly Circus, Leister Square, Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, London Eye ….. the list is endless but each and every sight will never be forgotten.
The group were also able to take part in educational activities such in a workshop in Shakespeare’s Globe theatre.
The natural History museum and the Science Museum were also included.
The highlight of the trip was the trip to the theatre to see “Dirty Dancing”!
