This year, the school took the largest number of students skiing as a single group. 100 students and 13 staff went to Grandvalira in Andorra for the February midterm. The weather was fantastic for most of the week but we did get a few hours of heavy snow on the slopes. Most of the students caught on to the skiing within a few days. Highlights of the trip saw 2 students stuck in a 2 foot hole, a student wiping herself out while recording another student skiing, a teacher accidently knocking over a poor student who was standing minding his own business, skiing in the fun park, the light show at the swimming poor, the cold pool in the Roman bath and off course, the disco. The hotel was very nice and rooms were clean. The food was not far of normal but McDonalds and Subway had to be tried. All in all it was a good week. It was not a relaxing holiday due to the lack of sleep. However it was a good week and there are plenty of memories and stories brought home.

After a slightly delayed 8:30 (9:00) start, we were off to the wilderness that is Coláiste Chú Chulainn, Gaoth Dobhair. ‘Buachaillí agus cailíní’, alike went ‘chun Gaeilge a fhoghlaim le spórt agus spraoi’.

The first stop was Glenveagh, where we walked and walked, and walked some more in the sun to Glenveagh castle. There was a lot of ‘uachtar reoití’ bought and we toured the gardens. Then it was onto the bus and on to the ‘tithe’ where we were greeted by our ‘Bean an Tís’ and a lovely lunch. After lunch we had ‘ranganna’ in the sun with the company of some questionable dogs….The céilí of musical statues and the €20 ‘duais’ was won by a mad shuffle up and down the hall.
