The first trip of the year for the Enniscorthy Vocational College Transition Year class took place to Sheilbaggan Outdoor Education Centre on Friday 31st August. Fears of heights and water were the topic of conversation on the bus journey to the centre. Reminders of challenging yourself and getting out of your comfort zone from Ms. Parker (Class Tutor) and Mr. Maher, TY Co-Ordinator eased their nerves. The students participated in coast steering, rock climbing, archery, caving and rope challenges. Many fears were conquered, fun was had by all and the weather held up. . In addition to the many activities on offer, it was a great team bonding day.
