The Spirit of TY winners were Evan Fitzpatrick and Amy Doyle. Also, a number of individuals were presented with medals for their participation in a lap of the 'Ireland Hike for Hospice' initiative.

TRANSITION YEAR COASTAL WALK

On Tuesday, 5th October, Transition Year students completed a 15km walk from Newcastle to Wicklow Town along the coast. This forms part of their training for the Gaisce hikes which will take place later in the school year. The weather was exceptional and the students completed this task with great spirits.



BE A SU'PAW'HERO - 50 MILES IN OCTOBER CHALLENGE

Third Year SPHE students are taking part in Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland’s October challenge to reach 50 miles in October and raise vital funds for AADI's Be A SuPAWhero campaign. The aim of the campaign is to reopen the waiting list in 2022 and offer more children the life-changing support of an autism assistance dog. We are hoping to help the AADI reach its goal of raising €500,000 to train a further 25 assistance dogs. It costs €22,000 and takes 2 years to train and place an assistance dog and the charity is entirely supported by fundraising and donations.

We are also putting a call out to anyone else who wishes to join in the challenge between now and the end of the month to get involved by clicking the link below and joining the CCM 'Donate For Doggos' page! 🐶
