Trip go hÁrainn

Trip go hÁrainn
As part of a cross-curricular project involving Geography, Gaeilge and Physical education our transition year students braved the elements and departed for the wet and windswept Aran Islands.
Students met with local food producers where they learned about the sustainable nature of this type of food production. Local goat farmer and award winning cheese maker Gabriel Faherty explained to students the importance of traceability in food production and their “Field to Fork” ethos.
We navigated the island on bicycle, our PE teacher putting us through our paces with some students complaining that there were not enough hills to climb!!
This mode of transport gave us a great chance to get up close and personal with some of the local flora and fauna, in particular some of the seals we observed from the seal colony a couple of kilometres into our cycle.

Despite the inclement weather it was a very enjoyable trip.

LCVP Work Placement “Takes flight”

LCVP Work Placement “Takes flight”

Congratulations to Denial Mills on securing probably the best Work Placement to date in the history of LCVP across the country!

He has spent 5 Days with Transaero, an Aircraft Maintenance Company in Shannon and this week he is currently working in The Tower at Shannon Airport with The Irish Aviation Authority. Here are some pictures he has sent back to the LCVP department.

I might add, Daniel is a 5th year LCVP student who initially sat in the IT room with aspirations of being an airline pilot – I must say he is going the right way about it! He applied to several airlines and was knocked back but he kept knocking at doors until he secured what he wanted.

I ask you this question: How many of you have sat in the cockpit of The Royal Jet that had just transported Prince Charles and Camilla to Ireland? Well Daniel Mills did. (For reasons of national security its best we don’t publish the photos of the interior – but first class has taken on a new meaning!!!)

He will spend the rest of the week monitoring flights over Ireland and the North Atlantic at the Irish Aviation Authority Tower at Shannon.

Well done Daniel !!!!
