On the 15th of June 2015 S.N.Rae na Scríne went on a wildlife walk up Carrigfadda Hill. Calvin Jones a pupil’s father came with us, alongside other parents. Calvin taught us about the wildlife and all the different birds that were nesting on trees. It was an exciting day for the pupils.
Calvin gave us binoculars to look at the birds that were chirping. It was a long way to the top. You could hear people’s legs creaking and the sun was beaming down on us. We would stop every few minutes for a rest and a drink.
At last we made it to the top, you could see the sign of relief on people’s faces. We sat at the top and ate our lunch, everyone was silent, you could hear the birds chirping and the trees blowing in the wind. The scenery up there was unbelievable and the cool fresh air was blowing in our faces.
We made our way back down the hill. From there we walked back to school, stopping for a history lesson on O’Donovan Rossa. What a day, am memory to keep for sure.
