FOURTH YEARS LEAVE NO TRACE

Forty stu­dents in­clud­ing 20 from our school took part in an ed­u­ca­tion pro­gramme in Glendalough to pro­mote the re­spon­si­ble use of the out­doors. The Leave no trace day was or­gan­ised by the Wick­low Up­lands Coun­cil and Wick­low Moun­tains Na­tional Park Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­tre. The stu­dents learnt about how ir­re­spon­si­ble be­hav­iour can have a neg­a­tive ef­fect on the lo­cal pop­u­la­tion, wildlife and the nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment.

The day gave our stu­dents an un­der­stand­ing of the im­pact they can have on the en­vi­ron­ment. The day also gave the stu­dents an un­der­stand­ing of the seven leave no trace prin­ci­ples. It was a great op­por­tu­nity for our stu­dents to meet with tran­si­tion stu­dents from other schools around Wick­low. A very en­joy­able and worth­while day was had by all.
