Over 30 Lower Sixth students undertook a practice expedition as part of the gold level of the President’s Award. The group have been preparing for the Award for the last number of months as part of their Enrichment studies and on Friday 31st March they travelled to the Antrim Hills to undertake a practice run ahead of the official expedition in June which will take place in the Wicklow mountains. The pupils deserve great credit for their endeavour, enthusiasm and application to the whole programme over the weekend. Thanks to Mr McAfee and the rest of the staff who accompanied the pupils at various stages over the weekend – Mr McLernon, Miss Doherty, Miss Shaw, Mr Trainor, Miss Donaghy and Miss Scullion.
All those involved with the President’s Award would like to acknowledge Friends of St Louis’ for their donation to the programme which has enabled the school to purchase items for the Award including essential first aid items and equipment required.
