The first year 1 Holly class participated in our annual school visit to Trinity and UCD on Friday 10th March. They were accompanied by Ms. Kennedy and Ms. Davey. As a reward for their great application to their school work and the fact that they have decided to join the HAPPIE programme, all students got to savour the delights of life on an academic campus. With usual Trinity vs UCD banter to be heard, they got the opportunity to decide for themselves, which college was the best!
