On Thursday the 30th of April, Transition Year students went to Tayto Park in Ashbourne, Co. Meath. We took part in a workshop called “Conservation and Stewardship” which highlighted the importance of looking after our earth and its animals. This was a very enlightening and interesting experience.
We even got up close and personal with various creepy crawlies (some preferred this more than others!). We got to see, touch and hold snakes, cockroaches, barn owls and a bearded dragon. We also had a tour of the zoo where we saw tigers, meerkats, bisons, a night monkey and micro goats to name a few.
Afterwards we went on some of the rides and activities such as rock climbing, zip lining, amusement rides and a sky walk. Ms. Kelly and Mrs. Sweeney accompanied us on the trip. We had a wonderful day and we are now all more wary of our earth and our environment! Report by Katie Elliot and Sarah Brady, T.Y. Students.
