1st Year Team Bonding Day The 27th August marked the beginning of a new school year in Coláiste Dún an Rí as it welcomed a new cohort of 1st year students through its doors. There was scenes of joy, inquisitiveness and nervous anticipation as students were split into their base class groups and departed on a team building day to Tanagh Outdoor Education Centre. Over the course of the day students engaged in a series of challenges within two very different environments. The first series of challenges were based in bogland where students had to work unison to complete these highly skilled activities. The second part of the day involved more team-building activities based on a river. This involved working together to build a raft and then race the other teams across the river without the raft falling apart. It was a highly competitive race and nearly all teams succeeded in making it across. After the activities the students and their families were invited to a barbecue. The principal, Mr. Fergal Boyle, welcomed them and their children as they begin a new journey through second level education in Coláiste Dún an Rí.
